The idea of the SMARTiP (Smart Metropolitan Areas Realised Through Innovation & People) project is to take the experience developed by a wide range of existing user-driven, open innovation initiatives in Europe, particularly those developed through Living Labs, and to apply this experience to the challenge of transforming public services by empowering smart citizens that are able to use and co-produce innovative Internet-enabled services within emerging smart cities.

Research objectives

The project will deploy currently available Internet-based technologies and services to develop a series of pilot projects, initially focusing on smart engagement, environments and mobility.
