Aveiro Tech City Living Lab - Applications are OPEN

It is now possible to submit applications for the experimentation of Aveiro Tech City Living Lab (ATCLL) through the address https://www.aveirotechcity.pt/pt/atividades/aveiro-tech-city-living-lab  an investment of the Municipality of Aveiro, Instituto de Telecomunicações, Altice Labs and the University of Aveiro, for the creation of an advanced communications infrastructure and an innovative urban data management platform that aims to give opportunity to researchers, digital industries, startups, scaleups and research centers to experiment and test digital products and services in the public space, free of charge. Entries can be made until December 31, 2021.

The access infrastructure is supported on state-of-the-art fibre technology, reconfigurable radio units, 5G-NR radio and 5G network services, aggregating and interconnecting a panoply of sensors and remote information gathering units that extend throughout the urban area of the city of Aveiro. The digital urban platform will allow the collection, processing and analysis of data, enabling the sharing of information from various sources (e.g. sensors, municipal applications and Data Base and external data sources), providing analytical services and the possibility of building predictive services for the different specific areas of city management. Technical support will also be provided to ATCLL users, taking full advantage of the potential of the infrastructure, urban platform services and available data.

The ATCLL aim to stimulate the implementation of scientific research projects and the development of technological solutions in the urban environment; attract and retain talent, including innovative technology-based organizations, researchers, digital industries, entrepreneurs and other national and international stakeholders; and boost the transition from Aveiro to a knowledge-based economy, with a view to improving the quality of life of its citizens.

The city of Aveiro and its strategic partners in this area are committed with the development of a technological urban center of reference at national level, but also at European level, which promotes the development of innovative solutions through the creation of this Laboratory for Experimentation and Technological Innovation.
