REMOURBAN - A sustainable urban regeneration model leveraging the convergence of energy, mobility and ICT to transform European cities into Smart Cities
The first Horizon 2020 project of Anadolu University is REMOURBAN project whose project coordinator is CARTIF, a horizontal research centre which covers a wide range of scientific disciplines.
The project team from Anadolu University consists of Prof. Dr. Ertuğrul Yörükoğulları, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Metin Kul, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Ahmet Şenol Aybek and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nil Aras. REMOURBAN consortium is composed by 22 partners across 7 different countries: 5 cities, 3 research institutions, 5 large industries and 9 SMEs. The consortium has a good balance across Europe to maximize economic and social impacts at EU level and represent all relevant stakeholders addressed by the REMOURBAN model. The consortium provides a suitable combination of research experts, building manufacturers, district owners, public authorities, industrial partners, SMEs, dissemination and exploitation experts, investors.
Energy, transport and information and communication technologies (ICT) are key to achieve economical and societal benefits and improve citizens' quality of life. They also represent most of the interrelations between people and technology.
A big challenge to offer new interdisciplinary opportunities to make cities smarter is already open in the common area where energy production, distribution and use, mobility and transport, ICT work together and are intimately linked.
REMOURBAN will implement large scale interventions and intense dissemination initiatives to demonstrate the potential of the urban regeneration model in the energy, mobility and ICT sectors.
The project is fully aligned with the Smart Cities European strategy and involves three lighthouse cities and two follower cities.
