What is URBANITE?
URBANITE - European Union’s Horizon 2020 Programme - SC6-TRANSFORMATIONS-2019 Project N° 870338
Description of the Project
In recent years, with the population and size of cities increasing exponentially, transportation has become even more important. The need for more efficient mobility solutions has been met with a variety of new concepts like sharing vehicles, electric scooters for rent, and even disruptive start-ups like Uber or Cabify, which are causing a stir with previously used models. However, such new models are putting public administrations in a challenging situation.
The EU-funded URBANITE project (funded from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement # 870338) aims to develop a solution that collects and analyses data, that combined with AI, can assist public administrations in policy-related decisions concerning urban transformation caused by these new transportation and business models. URBANITE focuses also on social aspects, by analyzing stakeholders’ trust in technologies aiding decision-making.
