The Institute of Smart Cities of the Public University of Navarre, is an Institute oriented to the design, analysis, implementation and optimization of intelligent environments. For it brings together a multidisciplinary team of excellence, from 7 university departments with a great capacity for attracting projects, competitive both in public announcements as in technology transfer with companies.
The concept of intelligent city corresponds to urban environments in which it is intended the use and management of various resources, such as electricity, rolled traffic, water, waste, and citizen relationship itself, integrated and efficient, by the combined use of sensor elements and distributed communications networks. This way a space is achieved in which is feasible both collecting a large amount of environmental data as a high degree of interaction of users and devices.
The activities of the Institute for Smart Cities will focus along technological lines that have some impact at different levels:
Institute of Smart Cities is a R+D institute dedicated to design and develop technology and services for smart cities, cities which aim to use and manage a range of resources, such as electricity, road traffic, water, waste and citizen engagement, in an efficient and integrated manner. In our vision, the combined use of sensing elements and distributed communication networks is paramount in order to achieve an environment in which it is possible both to compile a great deal of data on the urban ecosystem and attain a high degree of user-device interaction.
This institute is led by Full Professor Carlos del Rio and engages recognized, experienced researchers (17 senior researchers and other 21 researchers with more than 12 years’ experience) from different departments of the Public University of Navarre:.
Regarding the call SCC-01-2015, our strategy and activities are focused on five areas which offer a truly innovative potential.
ISC´s activities are all necessary to improve the state-of-art in the three main areas of SCC1:
Our holistic approach allows us to offer replicable, balanced and integrated solutions to increase the use of renewables energies, energy efficiency measures optimized at district level or the sustainability of urban transport, within economically acceptable conditions and, simultaneously, ensuring for citizens better life conditions.
