Description

What do we want our cities to be?
What does Smart mean?
Which services and innovations do citizens and stakeholders really need?

These are key questions for MAtchUP that aims at transforming cities through innovative solutions and technologies at the service of local communities.

MAtchUP looks at  cities as complex environments animated by multiple communities with common problems, needs and expectations to be satisfied and improved through a net increase in resilience, liveability and expertise.

Based on a citizen-centric approach, MAtchUP solutions in the energy, mobility and ICT fields will boost local economies and their quality of life. Furthermore they will serve as a model for replication in other cities and will lead to a urban transformation driven by citizens and stakeholders.

MAtchUP will deploy large scale demonstration projects in three Lighthouse cities, Valencia (Spain), Dresden (Germany) and Antalya (Turkey), and support the development of replication and upscaling plans in four Follower cities , Ostend (Belgium), Herzliya (Israel), Skopje (FYROM) and Kerava (Finland).
