Smart Cities and Communities - The Mediterranean Cluster

Smart Cities and Communities - The Mediterranean Cluster | EUMED consortium of organizations, professionals and experts | Scoop.it

Cities in the Mediterranean need to change and develop to overcome growing difficulties and adapt to the increasingly knowledge-intensive economies. Cities need to become ‘smart cities’.

 

The “Smart Cities in the Mediterranean” Strategic Partnership aims to work for ‘smartering’ cities in the Mediterranean region by sharing resources, knowhow and experience.

 

The Partnership  is formed between multidisciplinary organizations;  research centers, industry,  innovative SME’s, civil society actors and other stakeholders to integrate a range of planning approaches as well as tools and enabling technologies that can support participatory-oriented city- and citizen-specific urban planning studies, capable of dealing with sustainability challenges that are faced by cities today.

 

The scope of the Partnership is to identify, develop and deploy replicable, balanced and integrated solutions in the energy, transport, and ICT in select pilot cities in the Mediterranean region.

 

European and Mediterranean cities, although different from each other, they have similar needs that can be tackled best through a common approach.  The “Smart Cities in the Mediterranean” Partnership will focus on areas where ICTs, energy and mobility overlap and will provide solutions that can be transferable to other cities.

 

Emphasis will be placed on the application of the smart cities framework in select cities around the Mediterranean, “The Pilot Cities”.

Project PLUS-MED: Building a Participatory PLatform for Planning the FUture of Smart Cities in the MEDiterranean | EUMED consortium of organizations, professionals and experts | Scoop.it

RESEARCH PROPOSAL BY

Anastasia Stratigea, Associate Professor - NTUA, Dept. of Geography and Regional Planning, School of Rural and Surveying Engineering, National Technical University of Athens (NTUA).

 

The goal of the PLUS-MED project is the development of a collaborative ICTs-enabled planning framework for guiding participatory policy making,
that aims at the sustainable future development of the urban context, i.e. setting policy priorities as to the socially and economically desirable ICTs applications that can better serve future urban development objectives and citizens’ needs.

 

The proposed framework will integrate a range of planning approaches as well as tools and enabling technologies that can support participatory-oriented city- and citizen-specific urban planning studies, capable of dealing with sustainability challenges that are faced by cities nowadays. Emphasis will be placed on the application of the above framework in a specific case study in the Mediterranean region. In this specific case study, a digital platform will be developed, which, by integrating tools and enabling technologies as well as planning tools and approaches supporting participatory planning, will deal with the sustainable future development of the city, in the light of the climate change impacts and the need for setting policy priorities serving mitigation and adaptation purposes. In this respect, participatory-oriented alternative ‘smart city futures’ (scenarios) will be structured and evaluated, and policies will be prioritized, coping with sustainable development aspects and climate change impacts in the specific city environment.

Project MedTour - The Great Sea : A unique tourism destination

Project MedTour -  The Great Sea : A unique tourism destination | EUMED consortium of organizations, professionals and experts | Scoop.it

MedTour is a project designed by Chrysses Nicolaides of CNE, a consulting company established in 2004 specializing in Strategic Planning, Project and Event Management, and EU funding.

 

The Mediterranean Basin is one of the most diverse regions in the world and the countries bordering the Mediterranean share a complex and unique cultural heritage through the common long history, from the Phoenicians and the great civilizations such as the Greeks and the Romans, who reign for many years, to the modern days with the ongoing interactions in the countries bordering the Great Sea.

 

The beautiful landscapes, rich natural and cultural heritage, tradition, climate and proximity to major source markets, make Mediterranean
a unique place in the world and a unique tourism destination.

 

Although the Mediterranean climate represents the primary factor of attraction for tourists coming from all over the world, there has been
no significant integrated and consolidated effort in promoting Mediterranean as a homogeneous tourism destination, employing other unique and significant characteristics of the region such as cultural, religious and historic heritage and sites.

 

The vision of MedTour project is to develop and implement a strategy to promote Mediterranean as a unique and homogeneous tourism destination.

 

The main objective will be achieved with the development of an integrated Mediterranean brand identity overlooking country borders, considering alternative tourism products such as cultural, religious, wellness, spa, medical, nautical, agro tourism and others and by employing new communication and digital technologies.
 

The project's Integrated Mediterranean Tourism Strategy (IMTS) 

will encourage local Governments to remove barriers and work together to advance air and sea transport, improve quality of infrastructure and services, attract investment for regional tourism projects and, in close cooperation with businesses, to develop and implement attractive and competitive common tourism products, for the benefit of every destination and country in the region. 

 

The aim is to establish the Great Sea as a Unique Tourism Destination.
