The Joint Research Centre (JRC) - the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy - launched a call for expressions of interest to co-create Living Labs for two selected smart city application areas: transport and energy in two of JRC's research sites Ispra, Italy and Petten, the Netherlands for smart city solutions. The two campuses effectively simulate urban environments given the large number of staff, buildings, roads and utilities on the two sites, combined with the scientific expertise in multiple disciplines, dedicated experimental facilities and high-speed communication networks.
