What is STARDUST?
STARDUST is an EU Horizon 2020 Smart Cities project, which brings together advanced European cities, thus forming into a constellation of “innovation islands” – exemplary models of smart, highly efficient, intelligent and citizen-oriented cities.
Technical green solutions and innovative non-technical solutions will be implemented and validated, enabling them to be bankable and replicable for other cities. Indeed, STARDUST will lighten up the path for cities to relish a more sustainable livelihood by interweaving innovation and imagination at your fingertips.
In STARDUST, intelligent solutions for energy, mobility and ICT will be integrated in cities together with innovative business models, which will serve as blueprints for replication across Europe and abroad. These synergy of actions will transform cities into living labs, platforms where citizens and community engagement will become the driving elements to improve not only their way of life but also their local economies.
The project is fully aligned with the Clean Energy for All Europeans strategy and involves three lighthouse cities and four follower cities.
