Select for Cities

SELECT for Cities innovation challenge lies in developing an open, standardized, data-driven, service-oriented and user-centric platform that enables large-scale co-creation, testing and validation of urban IoE applications and services. The envisaged platform has several requirements, components and features that are currently not available in existing solutions. The platform must allow collaboration between departments and cities, (automated) testing of IoE services, and be based on an open and modular approach, supporting cloud-based, data-driven, service-oriented, user-centric co-creation, and large-scale testing. For that purpose SELECT for Cities will undertake a pre-commercial procurement (PCP) to procure the research and development of new innovative solutions capable of realising the goal having of the city as a large Internet of Everything Lab and putting it into practice.
