Main objectives and tasks

The main objective of the Action is to support decision-making, at the municipality level, in order to provide citizens with high quality services in the areas of security, emergency, operational management and planning.

The Action will deploy such support in Lisbon and two other cities to be defined at the beginning of the Action.

By building the analytical capabilities, and specifically analytical services able to support the management, the municipality will be in a position to better respond to the following challenges:

  • Mobility: by supporting new planning and management approaches altogether with new tools to evaluate impact and prediction of behaviours;
  • Waste management: by identifying patterns to support the prediction of the production of urban waste associated with a variety of context information (e.g. events, climate situation, etc.);
  • Parking: by creating new models either to predict or to generate viable alternatives for illegal parking in the city;
  • Pollution: by developing predictive models for the propagation of liquid and atmospheric pollutants;
  • Crowd management: by building impact prediction models based on the mobility/people flows in large events.

The Lisboa Urban Data Laboratory will use its analytical capabilities together with the best expertise at European level to make openly available the results of the Action.

The Action aims at developing a new generation of public services in the context of smart cities exploiting supercomputing facilities and public and private data to analyse complex combinations of large datasets in areas of public interest.

This will be achieved through the implementation of the following activities:

Activity 1: Data preparation and open data infrastructure assessment

Main objective

Prepare data and open data infrastructure for Smart Management Platform.

Tasks

Task 1.1: Data definition and requirements definition

Task 1.2: Services and Use Cases refinement

 

Activity 2 Services analytics refinement and HPC preparation

Main objective

Deploy the identified services in the co-creation labs and to connect them with the HPC infrastructure and with the applications, and the city services to be provided to users and stakeholders.

Tasks

Task 2.1: Preparation: data models and analytical services

Task 2.2: HPC and services set-up and deployment

 

Activity 3: Co-Creation Labs: perform experiences and validation by cities

Main objective

Validate the Co-Creation Labs proposed services in selected cities (Lisboa + 2) and adding new use cases.

Tasks

Task 3.1: Expand Co-Creation Labs: methodology, framework and technological tools definition

Task 3.2: Coordination of Co-Creation Labs: use cases implementation

 

Activity 4: Dissemination and Communication of results

Main objective

Maximise dissemination of the action results to a wide audience of researchers, city authorities, business organizations, EC and citizens.

Tasks

Task 4.1: Dissemination and Communication strategy and set up dissemination channels and material

Task 4.2: Implementing Dissemination & Communication activities

 

Activity 5: Future sustainability

Main objective

Ensure that action results are exploited beyond the duration of the action and will be sustainable in long-term.

Tasks

Task 5.1: Exploitation possibilities analysis

Task 5.2: Exploitation and sustainability planning

 

Activity 6: Project Management

Main objective

Ensure the quality levels of the action's results through the continuous monitoring of the action activities and their proper execution, the coordination of the work plan, and the optimum coordination of the beneficiaries.

Tasks

Task 6.1 : Coordination with the European Commission and reporting

Task 6.2: Quality assurance and progress management

Task 6.3: Project Management
