Blue-Sight works on several significant innovation projects for European and French partners.
SCALE is a consortium of 18 projects, 124 cities and over 430 partners. Its objective is to accelerate the replication and scaling up of the 500 demonstrators of the European Smart Cities and Communities programme. It is funded by the European Commission.
The 500 demonstrators are being developed across the European Union, covering issues of citizen engagement and local governance, energy infrastructure, sustainable mobility, data platforms and many other areas.
Smarter Together is a project of the European H2020 Smart Cities and Communities program.
Started in 2015, it brings together three lighthouse cities, Lyon, Munich and Vienna, as well as three fellow cities, Sofia, Venice and Santiago de Compostela.
The aim is to test innovative, user-centric solutions with high urban and environmental potential in three demonstrators. The project aims to replicate them on a larger scale and in the territories of the “follower” cities, as well as to share their feedback.
The solutions focus on five themes: data management platforms, renewable energy sources, holistic renovation, electric mobility, citizen engagement and participation.
In September 2020, the Club Ville Aménagement, which brings together all French public developers, launched a working group on smart city and its uses.
The objective is to respond to the challenges posed by smart cities. What are the impacts of the smart and sustainable city on the profession of urban developer? What are the expectations of elected officials, companies and citizens? What opportunities are there to enrich the practices of the whole value chain?
The working group is meeting in several workshops, with the aim of delivering a guide for developers on the opportunities of urban data platforms.
The AI4Eu project aims to build the European platform for artificial intelligence. It represents one of the pillars of the European Commission’s AI strategy and model.
The consortium developing this platform includes 82 partners and 22 countries.
AI4EU is linked to other Horizon 2020 projects, networks of excellence in AI, cyber security and industrial fields.
The objective is to deliver the platform and to animate the European artificial intelligence ecosystem.
AI4Copernicus is a research project funded by the European Commission. It aims at bridging the AI4EU on-demand platform and the Earth Observation data and services collected and created by Copernicus (the European spatial observation program). At the end of the project, the AI4EU on-demand platform will be the first choice for all users of Copernicus data, from scientists to SMEs and the non-tech sector.
The end goals for the project and the on-demand platform are :
- To drive technical integration
- To incentivise the AI4EU and Copernicus to solve tangible practical real-life problems in the fields of agriculture, energy, security and health-environment.
To that end, 8 small-scale experimentations and 9 use-cases have been selected through 4 open calls.
