Objectives | The ambition of the “City Catalyst – Catalyst for Sustainable Cities” project is the investigation, development and validation, in a real context, of innovative technological solutions and services that foster an integrated, more efficient and effective urban management, and a catalyst for innovation and sustainable development through specific contributions to the implementation and interoperability of urban platforms. The project was, therefore, structured around different lines of research and development/PPS pioneers from the perspective of Smart and Sustainable Cities related to sensing, communication and computational processing infrastructures (PPS1); information security and privacy (PPS2); data models and interfaces (PPS3); as well as open innovation and co-creation processes for the competitiveness of smart and sustainable cities (PPS5). It also includes the implementation of a set of demonstrators with the objective of validating the operation of the solutions to be developed in 5 Portuguese cities (Porto, Aveiro, Guimarães, Famalicão and Cascais).
