Short description of project idea :
EUDAW will develop an increased competitiveness among European key industries and sectors, vital to society, as well as increased efficiency, quality and accuracy in key public service sectors like energy, health care and traffic, by enabling big data applications and services, supported by regional/national, cloud-based and large-scale high performance computing pilot facilities, capable of handling and processing large data sets, delivered from both public and private (potential) data suppliers. EUDAW will assess existing data platform solutions and their market penetration + potential, including the Ckan and FIWARE, analyse user’s needs and prioritizations in an open innovation process and build a cloud based HPC platform and testbed for handling datasets from cities, produced by a multitude of private and public sources within traffic, (health), energy/supply and public spaces (infra structures and road services). We will examine the conditions for datasets to be aligned and qualified for pan-European analysis, processing and benchmarks going across the single sector, city and solution (company) to create opportunities for industry and public sector to innovate and create new services, products and strategies, based on 1. Aggregated data from a multitude of pan-European sources - data-based knowledge and evidence about users and usage factors (timing, seasons, climate, contexts) -technology and product response and resilience under different circumstances and loads - correlations between different factors and metrics connected to the service and usage of it. 2. Real-time data on usage, load and context factors by stimulating an European approach, going across national and sectorial borders, EUDAW can expand markets for local SME’s as well as increase supply for municipalities across Europe. Furthermore EUDAW will enable simulations and modelling based on large scale aggregated pan-European data through High Performance Computing facilities, based on cloud solutions.
Main areas of expertise:
intelligent urban services (smart city) development, city planning, energy and energy systems, circular economy, transport and mobility, green growth
Main objectives of the project and how will they be achieved:
1. Increased competitiveness & expanded market opportunities for European SME's. By utilizing big data from a multitude of European sources, the SME's can benchmark performances, predict and forecast market demand in a detailed and accurate time-frame as well as simulate behaviour and product resilience, security and privacy issues under different conditions (numbers, season, climate, load etc) and thus achieve a much better strategic approach to a market expansion, going across the European Union and beyond in a global perspective 2. More efficient and qualitatively improved public service sectors. the public sector can become much more accurate in allocation of resources and operational practice/management by utilizing data from a multitude of sources in their key sectors; energy, traffic control and health care. the units and directorates can benchmark performance and efficiency, analyze users and staffs feedback, predict and forecast citizens demand in a detailed time-frame as well as simulate behaviour and resilience, security and privacy issues under different conditions (numbers, season, climate, load etc) and thus achieve a much better strategic approach to optimizing expenditure and utilization of resources.
Challenges that may determine the impact of the project:
Inhomogeneous data sources, closed protocols and private interests' protection
Besides from dealing with the technological challenges of collection and shared use of different types of data, the platform will have to establish a framework, that can accommodate private company interests in a non-competitive and/or pre-commercial legal-structural framework.
ICT-capacities, High Performance Computing, API's and IOT
While the influx of data, the 'raw-material' must be organized, EUDAW must develop and pilot the technological solutions and ability of the cloud-based platform to handle large scale data amounts, align the data for processing and retrieve value-creating results in terms of analysis, forecasts and benchmarks.
The process of multi-stakeholder approach
The success of EUDAW will depend on the ability to understand, contain and nudge the different stakeholders and participants interests and priorities into a common process frame, allowing and stimulating sharing as well as individual and different approaches to be pursued.
Partners that have already expressed interest in the project and expected role:
Profile of partners sought and expected role:
Cities with larger scale smart city installations
Cities with larger scale operational (responsible organization and management) smart city installations encompassing sensors with IP-access within sectors like health, traffic and energy. The local pilots should encompass private suppliers and companies.
Living labs and professionalised test facilities
Living labs and test facilities with installations encompassing sensors with IP-access within vital sectors like health, traffic and energy. The pilots should encompass private suppliers and companies. DOLL will be in this category, delivering data from a large number of sensors.
Research & innovation institution(s)
Academically based organisation with capacity of defining, assessing and developing of the technologies and ICT-solutions needed.
Data, HPC and/or cloud services market operators
Private companies in the data and HPC computing value chains of Europe.
