Technological solution to urban problems

Within the framework of the preparation of new programmes, the coordination of national policies and their coordination with Community policies, technology monitoring and strategic analysis, the European Commission has published a call for tenders for five studies on urban problems.

The five studies are intended to deepen the understanding of the current difficulties faced by many modern cities and the technological options which may contribute to the resolution of current and future urban problems. The studies deal with the following areas:
- Development of new "urban concepts" integrating technologies and verification of their applicability to certain urban situations;
- Identification of the requirements for the integration of cities into their regional environment;
- Promotion of the development of intra-and trans-urban networks;
- Development of simulation models for particular cities which will be selected in order to evaluate alternative solutions to urban problems;
- Evaluation of possible technological options to relieve the challenges caused by urban congestion.
