REMOURBAN is a smarty city project and its ultimate goal is to design and deliver a model to show how sustainability can be integrated into the regeneration of our towns and cities to develop ‘Smart Cities’. The REMOURBAN model will take advantage of the crossover between energy, mobility and ICT to develop a new method for developing smart cities. The model aims to...
- improve quality of life for people living in the area
- improve environmental sustainability
- speed up the amount of time it takes to deploy innovative solutions
- develop new business and funding models for city regeneration
- ensure that the solution is welcomed by the local community and fit for how people want to live their lives.
The project will trigger strategic partnerships between innovative organisations both public and private and it will draw on pioneering solutions from the Energy, ICT, and Mobility sectors in three Lighthouse cities, identified as demonstrators, Valladolid (Spain), Tepebasi/Eskisehir (Turkey) and Nottingham (UK), and two Follower cities, Seraing (Belgium), and Miskolc (Hungary), as replicators.
Citizens are at the heart of the REMOUBAN project as they are the cornerstones of a smart city. They will be the common thread throughout each participating city, some will benefit directly through improved housing and transport options and the replicability of the model will be a benefit to all.
The REMOURBAN model will develop a system for analysis, diagnosis and decision-making in the field of the urban regeneration. It will include a decision support tool to facilitate the selection of the best solutions for improving the key parameters that define urban sustainability and smartness. These decisions will identify the appropriate technologies and the least risky and the most efficient business plans aimed at creating local value.
