Network, Alliance Partnership Joint Research Knowledge Center Living Lab
Cities Labs and Test beds. Federated experimental validation and testing platforms for technologies, applications and services interest group.
There is a large number of existing experimental facilities, projects and tools that are providing different capabilities and capacities for Smart Cities research and experimentation, business development, validation, testing and demonstration with high level of fragmentation among them. There is a growing demand to establish digital business development platforms and growth environments as Cities Lab to support innovation, new services and business models for Smart Cities and Regions. The federation of available experimental faculties for Smart Cities services and systems has a tremendous potential and faces a big challenges. The system integration and concept of joint federated experimental platform for Smart Cities Resilience, Sustainability and Security has not been established yet. There is a missing framework of Living Labs and experimental platforms that could allow to gain experiments to gain realistic data on Smart Cities techno-social systems. The repository of available facilitates has not been developed. The existing experimental facilities interoperability at different levels remains an open question.. The federation and sustainable deployment require serious evaluation of the associated organizational, economic aspects. These complex issues require multidisciplinary research collaboration and input from academic and industrial research which is the main scope of the interest group.
