STARTDUST

European Smart Cities

The objective of STARDUST (Holistic and integrated urban model for smart cities) project is to pave the way towards the decarbonisation and transformation of the cities into Smart, high efficient, intelligent and citizen oriented cities, developing urban technical green solutions and innovative business models, integrating the domains of buildings, mobility and efficient energy through ICT, testing and validating these solutions, enabling their fast roll out in the market. Pamplona (ES), Tampere (FI) and Trento (IT)-willl be lighthouse cities with the associated follower cities of Cluj-Napoca (Rumanía), Derry (UK), Kozani (GR) and Litomerice (CZ). CENER (National Renewable Energy Centre of Spain) leads the project.

STARDUST
Programme: 
Horizon2020
Period: 
2017-2022
Sector: 
Smart Cities
01
The Challenge: 

The three lighthouse cities and four follower cities will work on different actions and projects, facing common urban challenges to be overcome in the upcoming years. CO2 emissions, atmospheric pollution, traffic congestion, fuel poverty, energy efficiency, economic growth and job creation, digital gap, and the increase of international visibility will be tackled by the STARDUST project.  

02
Solutions: 
These seven cities will collaborate closely with relevant industrial partners, including a variety of innovative local SME, and will be supported by academia and research organisations in innovation development and demonstration. This unique and clearly committed partnership will demonstrate three lighthouse cities, deploy intelligent integration measures, test and validate technical solutions and innovative business models, and deliver blueprints for replication throughout Europe and abroad.
03
Impacts: 

The aim is to test and validate these solutions, enabling their fast roll out in the market. The STARDUST project will demonstrate that the smart integration of these actions, together with other accompanying non-technological measures can provide a platform for citizens and community engagement. The smart cooperation among each other will increase the quality of life of the citizens while driving the local economies forward by means of a novel productive model. 

"A real Smart City will consider the needs, the opinion and the participation of the citizenship to design its arquitecture and services. And the technology will serve this aims. The main goal of STARTDUST project is develop actions, measures and resources to have a clean air, fight againts energy poverty and assure the sustanaible mobility of its habitants".
