About the project

RUGGEDISED is a smart city project funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. It brings together three lighthouse cities:

  • Rotterdam
  • Glasgow
  • Umeå

and three follower cities:

  • Brno
  • Gdansk
  • Parma

to test, implement and accelerate the smart city model across Europe.  Working in partnership with businesses and research centers these six cities will demonstrate how to combine ICT, e-mobility and energy solutions to design smart, resilient cities for all.

This means improving the quality of life of citizens, reducing the environmental impact of activities and creating a stimulating environment for sustainable economic development.
