URBANITE: Data-driven decision-making in urban transformation

Facilitate urban mobility policy decision-making by exploiting data with an ICT ecosystem built upon disruptive technologies.

Approach & Solution



European urban environments are facing a revolution in urban mobility mainly related to the wide increase of population in cities and today also to the recent COVID-19 pandemic.

While data is becoming a fundamental resource for the creation of intelligent urban ecosystem the challenges are still numerous: e.g. data sets are not always usable or they are scattered and available in different data sources, there is scarce or inexistent interaction among the different systems, services and people and there is a lack of a thorough understanding of the impact as well as implications of the use of disruptive technologies.

URBANITE empowers decision makers to perform smart, accurate, efficient policy making through an effective adoption of disruptive technologies and co-creation practices.

The project develops tools for the collection, organization, integration, storing and visualization of data. It enables the analysis of current situations and trends and the simulation and prediction of different situations. It engages citizens and civil servants in the policy making process through co-creation practices and tools and it provides policy makers with guidelines on the adoption of disruptive technologies. Project results are validated in Amsterdam, Bilbao, Helsinki and Messina.

Engineering leads the activities related to supporting the 4 cities in the customization of URBANITE tools and it leads the implementation of the digital co-creation environment.

The project has received co-funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 programme - Contract No. 870338.
