Altice Labs at the official launch of the Sharing Lisboa project
21/11/2018 Sharing Cities / Sharing Lisboa
The project with european funding, Sharing Cities, which unites municipalities, companies and citizens in Lisbon, Milan and London, aims to test a new approach to the development of smart cities, improving the quality of life in cities through the use of new technologies and the involvement and proximity of citizens.
It began in January 2016 and will end at the end of 2020, with focus on identifying intervention measures in the city that will directly and indirectly benefit citizens through the development of actions in urban rehabilitation, energy sustainability and urban mobility optimization. These three guiding axes have been determining intervention measures in strategic areas of the city. In Portugal, the project is led by the Lisbon City Council, and Altice Labs, EMEL, CEiiA, EDP Distribuição, Lisboa E-Nova, Reabilita and IST are part of the Consortium.
Among the measures carried out by the Consortium, at a national and international level, the Digital Social Market (MSD) stands out, a pilot experience at european level, operating through a digital channel - the Sharing Lisboa Application, developed by Paulo Chaínho , Luís Duarte, Rafael Felgueiras and Patrícia Gaspar from Altice Labs - and aims to promote more environmentally sustainable behaviors through a system of benefits and rewards that unites three distinct communities - the local community (citizen), the school community and local market (shops), through a small game that rewards those who have more healthy and sustainable behaviors.
The Sharing Lisbon application was officially launched on the 9th November 2018, during a session held at the City Hall. The first "game" began on the same day, involving students and teachers from three schools covered by the project intervention area, who will collaborate to obtain credits for their cause through their involvement in activities such as: walking, cycling , saving energy, responding to small inquiries or visiting local commerce. All schools will win, but the one with the most points will win more. In this first game, the winning school will receive € 20.000 to invest in improving its energy efficiency.
Altice Labs contributes to the Sharing Cities programme, not only with the Sharing Lisboa application, but also with the Urban Platform for Data Aggregation and Sharing (USP), which will integrate data from several systems and companies involved in the project.
