Approach

CIVIS’s aim is to contribute to the design of a fairer, more sustainable, energy-optimised smart city. The project focuses on the ICT-enabled social dimension to harness the potential of innovation of individuals and collectives with respect to energy prosumption. CIVIS will link energy, ICT and society to achieve significant impacts in terms of CO2 reduction and new forms of social innovation.
