IRIS - Smart cities

City of Gothenburg will in the project IRIS, together with Utrecht and Nice, address to the urgent need to deliver energy and mobility services in a more sustainable way, and contribute to a more urban quality of life. For five years the project will continue to test and work with smart city solutions on many levels, and with different stakeholders in cooperation for the best added value.

The areas in focus are energy management, energy renewables, mobility solutions, digital transformation and citizen engagement and co-creation.
The aim is that solutions that are proved working well could be replicated elsewhere.
IRIS is a Lighthouse project which consists of three European cities: Utrecht, Nice and Gothenburg. In addition, four follow-up cities also participate: Vaasa, Alexandroupolis, Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Focsani.
The follower cities will be active in sharing information regarding the test beds and integrated solutions that are being implemented within the project. Their own needs will be paving the way to their coming replication.
The IRIS project is financed by the Smart Cities and Communities - a Lighthouse project within the programme of Horizon 2020.
