We set out the global goal of the project.
Municipal policymakers need to make educated decisions to shape the future of mobility in cities; there is a persistent assumption that these decisions can be facilitated by a data-driven platform.
The decision-making process in the policy-making should rely on data-driven evidence, in most of the cases, the raw data needs to be processed to transform it into actionable infor
Among its functionalities, The URBANITE Platform allows its users to build and share custom dashboard.
Save the date: the final event of the URBANITE project will take place at the OASC- Open & Agile Smart Cities Annual Summit & General Assembly, next 14th June in Brussels, Belgium.
The IMPETUS has invited several projects working on a variety of topics including sustainability, pollution, health, inclusion and diversity.
The decision-making process is essential when it comes to addressing any decision, it aims to solve problems and give a set of options or alternatives, which represent some actions
During the project different policy co-creation sessions took place: the first SoPoLab (Social Policy Lab) session, entitled “Ask: defining challenges and formulating shared values and principles”,
On March 16, 2023, the fourth (and last) SoPoLab (Social Policy Lab) event was held in the Sala Giunta of the Municipality of Messina, organized as part of the EU-2020 URBANITE project by the Munic

In previous blog posts the overall architecture of the Urbanite platform [^1] and the harvesting process [^2] were described.
During 2022, 4 General Assemblies were held, the first on a virtual/on-line format, the rest F2F.
The 9th General Assembly was held in Amsterdam, hosted by Gemeente Amsterdam and WAAG.
The activities related to co-creation in URBANITE project are mainly performed through what we call SoPoLabs (Social Policy Labs) which see the involvement of the

Despite the fact that AI technologies are mature enough, their adoption by policy makers and public servants is very uneven, and in general, much lower than one would expect.
The European Week of Regions and Cities, organised by the European Commission and the European Committee of the Regions, is the biggest annual event dedicated to cohesion policy.
This process of co-creation sessions through the Social Policy Lab in URBANITE helps us to identify social challenges associated with the use of disruptive technologies in the provision of services
As Urbanite is entering its final phase, the Municipality of Amsterdam and Waag organised the third and final Amsterdam Social Policy Lab (SoPoLab).
Disruptive technologies empowering decision-making in the public sector, sharing our results adopting a data-driven approach , 25th May at 15:30.
Transport planning plays a major role in defining the way public resources such as funds and spaces are used. This is also the case in Helsinki, Finland.
The Chief Technology Office (CTO) of the Municipality of Amsterdam and Waag are exploring innovative ways of collaborating with businesses and societal organisations on data collection and sharing
The URBANITE integrated architecture presents a theoretical vision of the URBANITE system covering all the functional and non-functional initial requirements set by the technical work-packages.
A data-driven policy-making aims to make optimal use of data and collaborate with citizens to co-create urban policies and, in general, to conduct a more reliable decision-making process.
The urban transformation, and the changes that the world is undergoing, lead, today more than ever, to the need to make faster and more timely choices in the field of mobility management.
During 2021, 4 General Virtual Assemblies were held. Due to COVID-19, the meeting was held online using Teams.
How disruptive technologies can strengthen urban mobility transformation, the experience of URBANITE
Today’s cities are facing a revolutionary era in urban mobility and decision-makers have to face more and more complex challenges when managing and planning mobility.
Creating simulation scenarios for the four cities included in the URBANITE project, those being Bilbao, Amsterdam, Helsinki and Messina, is a part of the activities performed by the URBANITE team.

In the last 25 years Bilbao has suffered an important urban transformation from an industrial economy with heavy industry and harbour facilities to a city based on a service economy.
Mobility policy needs to include citizens - after all, we are all experts on the way we move about in our daily lives.
The Urbanite project will provide technical support to decision-makers in the domain of urban mobility. This support takes the form of predictive models constructed by specialized AI algorithms.
Due to digitalization, there is a growing number of traffic and mobility data available for the cities to use world-wide. It is usually in the interest of cities to take control over this data.
In the context of URBANITE, we are currently performing a survey of existing methods for data modelling and visualizations that could apply to the urban mobility planning domain.
As reported in “eGovernment Benchmark 2016. A turning point for eGovernment development in Europe?”,
Urban mobility faces more significant long-term uncertainty and complexity generated by two main factors: the demand for growth in urban environments, the pressure
