URBASOFIA’s Portfolio

URBASOFIA’s Portfolio includes:

  • SUNSHINE (Smart UrbaN ServIces for Higher eNergy Efficiency) delivers innovative digital services for automatic large-scale assessment of building energy behavior, optimize energy consumption of heating/cooling systems and interoperable control of public illumination systems, targeting to develop a smart service platform accessible from both a web-based client and an App for smartphones and tablets, while its technology will be piloted in 9 city sites for 12 months, aiming at the reduction of energy consumption and emissions by 10-30%.
  • i-LOCATE (Indoor/outdoor LOCation and Asset management Through open gEodata) pilots an integrated platform for management and tracking of mobile assets and people within institutions, in order to streamline various processes and improve citizens' experience within public buildings, for a duration of 12 months, within a real-life operational scenario, in the context of 14 operational pilot locations in 8 EU countries, by making use of the creation of a virtual hub for indoor mapping data, the creation of an open source i-locate toolkit and the creation of mobile client-side technologies.
  • STATUS (Strategic Territorial Agendas for „Small and Middle-sized Towns” Urban Systems) touches upon both a co-designed Strategic Agenda and a smart platform. The project is tackling the problem of incoherent urban and regional development in South Eastern European and neighboring countries by jointly developing an approach that can help cities and regions in making integrated and sustainable urban agendas and place based strategies by participatory planning tools, while, at the same time, follows upon cross-cutting constructive interferences among partner cities' planning processes, facilitating the design of effective and efficient urban tools, by creating the SEE Web Platform as an online smart toolkit of practices, solutions and services targeting the European urban settlements.
