HOLISTIC AND INTEGRATED URBAN MODEL FOR SMART CITIES
STARDUST serves as smart connector bringing together advanced European cities and citizens of Pamplona (ES), Tampere (FI) and Trento (IT) - with the associated follower cities of Derry (UK), Kozani (GR) and Litomerice (CZ). These six cities, collaborating with relevant industrial partners, including a variety of innovative local smart and medium enterprises (SMEs), and supported by academia and research centres, will deploy intelligent integration measures, test and validate technical solutions and innovative business models, and deliver blueprints for replication throughout Europe and abroad.
The objective of the STARDUST project is to pave the way towards the transformation of cities into smart, high efficient, intelligent and citizen oriented urban spaces through developing technical green solutions and innovative business models, integrating the domains of buildings, mobility and efficient energy through ICT, testing and validating these solutions and enabling their fast roll out in the market.
The core idea of the project is the demonstration of different “innovation islands” as urban incubators of technological, social, regulatory and market solutions.
