CEC to support SCORE Project


Researchers at the University of Bradford are working with nine 'smart cities' across Europe to help them save up to €50m by using 'smart' technologies and accessing the services of the Computing Enterprise Centre.

The five-year Smart Cities and Open Data Re-use (SCORE) project sees the University of Bradford working alongside the University of Amsterdam in The Netherlands and Aarhus University in Denmark to develop innovative ideas including interactive dustbins that can sense when they are full, intelligent car parks that can highlight empty spaces and real-time flood-warning information data that could save lives.

These ideas will be trialled and potentially implemented in cities across Europe, including Aarhus, Amsterdam, Aberdeen, Bergen, Bradford, Dordrecht, Ghent, Gothenberg and Hamburg.

The academic team from the University of Bradford involved in the SCORE project includes Dr Dhaval Thakker, Professor Daniel Neagu, Professor Marian Gheorghe and Professor Yakun Guo. The partner cities will harness University of Bradford’s expertise in IoT, Big Data, and software development and testing to help cities develop, test and refine smart city solutions. They will have access to the University’s state of the art IoT and Software engineering and modelling facilities, the IoT Innovation Lab and the Bradford Computer Enterprise Centre.

The SCORE project will be also a great opportunity for University students from undergraduate and postgraduate courses to develop their projects and expertise on Internet of Things, Big Data and Smart Cities.
