EU CR&D Priorities _ 1 CE-SC5-03: Demonstrating systemic urban development for circular and regenerative cities

Summary

Actions should demonstrate how cities can be transformed into centres of circular innovation and stimulate regenerative practices (including the surrounding industrial areas and commercial ports). Actions should develop and implement innovative urban planning approaches and instruments (e.g. dynamic and semantic 3D real time flexible geospatial data and planning tools, innovative governance and legislation enabling new practices, design approaches, business models, etc.) to support and guide the transition towards circular and regenerative cities in terms of their built environment, public space, urban spatial use and programming. They should demonstrate innovative solutions for closing the loop of urban material and resource flows within the nexus of water, energy, food, air, ecosystem services, soil, biomass, waste/wastewater, recyclables and materials and for supporting an increase in the regenerative capacity of the city.

LC-SC3-SCC-1 Smart Cities & Communities (lighthouse projects)

Summary

The challenge is to develop integrated innovative solutions for Positive Energy Blocks/Districts and their interaction with the energy system from a technical, financial, social, regulatory and legal point of view. Projects must consider the interaction and integration between the buildings, the users and the larger energy system as well as implications of increased electro-mobility, its impact on the energy system and its integration in planning. 2 Lighthouse cities develop and test integrated innovative solutions to tackle this challenge. Lighthouse cities closely collaborate with 5 Follower cities and should act as exemplars. Proposals should pay attention to: •

positive project contribution to overall city goals and focus on mixed use urban quarters;

the solutions' ability of being replicated/gradually scaled up (to city level);

promote decarbonisation, while improving air quality;

incorporate performance monitoring (ideally for more than 2 years);

active involvement of citizens as well as local government and city planning departments, increased energy awareness, pro-active energy management, crowdsourcing (intellectual or economic) etc.;

EU CR&D Priorities _ 2 LC-MG 1-6: Sustainable multimodal inter-urban transport, mobility and spatial planning in large metropolitan regions

LC-MG 1-3: Harnessing and understanding the impacts of change in urban mobility on policy making

Summary

Summary

New forms of people mobility and freight distribution, such as soft mobility schemes, drive-sharing, ride-sharing, CAVs, flying vehicles, MaaS, could revolutionise transport demand with consequences for cities. To address these challenges, a multidimensional approach is needed to assess new forms of mobility in all transport modes. Proposals should address one or several of these: • environmental, socio-cultural and spatial impacts of planning in large metrop. regions, whilst also enhancing connectivity; governance and institutional issues;

Actions will examine the impacts of new mobility solutions, addressing the changing mobility patterns and set up of mobility services, incl. possible negative effects, and covers all relevant transport modes and vehicle types. City-led proposals should address one or more of the following: •

investments in and management of the transport network, with attention for facilities for recharging; transport system resilience; and transport demand management tools;

new forms of mobility with greatest impact on spatial redesign of urban and low-density areas, on urban space sharing, on new public and private service allocation patterns, investments in infrastructure and new solutions for collective transport and transport planning. Identify ways to promote their implementation of the new forms of mobility both in passenger and freight transport;

the specific challenges in areas undergoing rapid economic change, for example in institutional setup; policy coherence; policymaker’s mind-set; outdated or incomplete legislation/methodologies; and data/statistics;

new operating and business models in collective public and private transport;

Use of geolocalisation data for cooperative mobility in combination with other communication and telematic data to reduce air pollution;

pathways to tackling congestion and reducing levels of car use through decoupling economic growth and high mobility from traffic growth;

Suggest appropriate measures to ensure the lowest carbon and air pollutant level of transport;

implications with urban planning and design including inputs for developing SUMPs.

Adapting & extending the SUMP concept, overcoming social segregation and inequalities in access to education, jobs, health and leisure;

Development of sustainable policies with proven environmental impact.

International cooperation is encouraged, especially twinning with US DOT projects.

EU CR&D Priorities _ 3 ICT 24 2018: Next Generation Internet Summary

The challenge is to develop a more human-centric Internet supporting values of openness, cooperation across borders, decentralisation, inclusiveness and protection of privacy; giving the control back to the users. It should provide more transparent services, greater involvement and participation, leading towards an Internet that is more open, interoperable and more supportive of social innovation. Involving today’s best Internet innovators to address technological opportunities arising from cross-links and advances in various research fields ranging from network infrastructures to platforms, from application domains to social innovation. Beyond research, the scope includes validation and testing of market traction with minimum viable products and services, of new economic, mobility and social models, and involves users and market actors at an early stage. The proposal will build a European ecosystem of researchers, innovators and tech developers by selecting and providing financial support to the best projects submitted by third parties in a competitive manner. The focus will be on use cases that can be brought quickly to the market; apps and services that innovate without a research component are not covered by this model. The proposal will focus on 1 of the 3 priority areas: 1. Privacy and trust enhancing technologies 2. Decentralized data governance: leveraging on distributed open hardware and software ecosystems based on blockchains, distributed ledger technology, open data and peer-to-peer technologies. Attention should be paid to ethical, legal and privacy issues, the concepts of autonomy, data sovereignty and ownership, values and regulations. 3. Discovery and identification technologies

EU CR&D Priorities _ 4 ICT 34 Pre-commercial procurement (open)

Summary The challenge is to enable public procurers to collectively implement PCPs to close the gap between supply and demand for innovative ICTs. The objective is to bring radical improvements to the quality and efficiency of public services by encouraging the development and validation of breakthrough solutions through Pre-Commercial Procurement. PCP actions targeting consortia of procurers with similar procurement needs that want to procure together the development of innovative ICT based solutions to modernise public services whilst creating growth opportunities for industry and researchers in Europe in new markets. This topic is open to proposals for PCP actions in all areas of public sector interest requiring innovative ICT based solutions. It is open both to proposals requiring improvements mainly based on one specific ICT technology field, as well as to proposals requiring endto-end solutions that need combos of different ICT technologies. Proposals shall demonstrate sustainability of the action beyond the life of the project. Activities shall include cooperation with policy makers to reinforce the national policy frameworks and mobilise substantial additional national budgets for PCP and PPI, as well as awareness raising, technical assistance and/or capacity building to other procurers beyond the project to mainstream PCP/PPI implementation and to remove obstacles for introducing the innovative solutions to be procured into the market.

TRANSFORMATION-05 Cities as a platform for citizen-driven innovation

Summary

Public institutions are increasingly challenged to find new ways to provide public value in an open, transparent

way, while citizens are more engaged. The challenge is to capture the creativity of local solutions and their potential opportunities, both from a social and market perspective, including the potential for sustaining alternative economies. Proposals should capture successful innovative practices that are emerging in Europe particularly from urban areas that effectively absorb, develop and create new knowledge and ideas, and turn this knowledge into social & economic development. They should take stock of how citizens are increasingly engaging in the experimentation and developing new solutions blending technological, non-tech, cultural and social practices. The issue is how to scale up these community-driven approaches without compromising their participatory character. Citizen-driven innovation also increases the possibilities for a broader range of people to become directly involved in all stages of social action & innovation, thus enhancing co-creation while boosting equal opportunities & promoting social integration. Proposals should also assess how citizen-driven collaborative innovation can help overcome the lack of equity about both the access to ICT solutions and the concrete involvement in innovation process of traditionally underrepresented social groups.
