A little more than a year ago I shared with you my reflections on the first year of the IRIS project. Now more than one year on the world around has changed… and so have our IRIS project results. A moment to share some key takeaways and valuable resources being made available.
Watch our webinar on March 24th to learn about the business model of the Mobility as a Service (MaaS) concept implemented in Gothenburg and the experience which derives from the implementation and the analysis of monitoring results. The webinar aims to accelerate the knowledge exchange by highlighting experiences and by connecting demonstrations.
Interview with Paolo Moura, Head of Innovation & Strategic Partnerships at Université Côte d'Azur - IMREDD
IRIS Smart Cities speaks with Mauritz Knuts of Vaasa Region Development Company and Co-Chair of a European working group on replicating smart city solutions about scaling up and transferring smart city technologies. Further insights and resources available at the end of this interview.
IRIS project partner, the Municipality of Alexandroupolis recently renewed and underlined their commitment to CO2 reduction as part of the Covenant of Mayors.
IRIS published another open access paper. In this study we reviewed business model development frameworks and developed a practical tool to help cities assess business models by adapting components of the Business Model Canvas (BMC) and adding new ones that operationalize the smart city dimensions.
Watch our webinar on December 17th at 9:00 CET.
Turning smart city ambitions into partnerships and investment plans is a challenging path. To inspire and guide cities in this process, IRIS Smart Cities spoke with three people who made it happen in Utrecht: Muriel Pels and Inge van de Klundert from Municipality of Utrecht and Carolien van Hemel of Utrecht Sustainability Institute.
Early October 2019, a number of councilors from the municipality of Utrecht visited Kanaleneiland-Zuid, a neighborhood hosting many of the IRIS project’s sustainable and co-creation initiatives.
The Future Today Institute (FTI) 2019 tech trends report analyses emerging science and technology shaping our world, including 16 indicators dedicated to smart cities. Issued earlier this year, we almost missed this insight filled report; but couldn’t agree more with IRIS lighthouse cities featuring heavily in the global top 50. Gothenburg on the podium at #2, Utrecht #16 and Nice at #37.
