Learning Flexibility: Complexity, Innovation & Inter-Urban Knowledge Transfer
Learning Flexibility: Complexity, Innovation & Inter-Urban Knowledge Transfer focusses on flexible and sustainable cities by identifying novel lessons and knowledge from cities facing complexity, crisis or limited resources.
The integration of ICT solutions in critical infrastructures is making societies increasingly "smarter" (e.g. smart cities, smart grids and smart transport). This presents both opportunities and risks. This is the starting point of SmartResilience – how can we ensure that the smart society is also a safe and secure society?
Cooperative ITS for Mobility in European Cities
CIMEC is a city-focused project which will explore the role cooperative ITS systems (C-ITS) can play to support city authorities, both in managing their transport networks and the delivery of other transport-linked services. It will reach out to key stakeholder groups (both public and private) to ensure a smooth and cost-effective deployment of C-ITS in cities around Europe. The project commenced in June 2015 and will run until May 2017.
DynamITe competence project
New optimisation models and solution algorithms are needed to develop systems and services for intermodal personal itinerary planning and vehicle routing that handle dynamics effectively and efficiently.
Efficient value chains for the forest industry in Coastal Norway
This project will contribute to new knowledge on efficient use of sea transportation and efficient quay operations within the forest value chain, in order to increase the quantities of timber and wood related products transported by ship in Coastal Norway. Hence, the project will also help to stimulate regional growth and use of local timber in the Norwegian forest industry.
Health effects of different shift work arrangements in the petroleum- and health care sector
Understanding the health and safety effect of work schedules is important because an increasing number of people work outside standard working hours. Different working hours and an increased demand for flexible working hours are especially important in occupations characterized by traditional rotation schemes, as in the health care and petroleum sector.
