Assessing Smart City Initiatives for the Mediterranean Region
ASCIMER is a three-year research project led by the Transport Research Center at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (TRANSyT) and carried out together with professors from other different departments and research centers at UPM. It is an initiative supported by the European Investment Bank under the EIB University Research Sponsorship Programme (EIBURS).
The project responds to the lack of standardized metrics and methodologies to assess, prioritize, finance, implement, manage and replicate those initiatives being developed nowadays and referred to as Smart City projects.
The overall goal of this research program is to develop a comprehensive framework to help public and private stakeholders to make informed decisions about Smart City investment strategies and to build skills to evaluate and prioritize these kinds of projects, including solving difficulties regarding deployment and transferability.
The project will address the following objectives:
