SPARCS is developing a shared bold City Vision 2050 as a co-creation process between cities, industry, innovative SMEs, entrepreneurs and citizens, for each lighthouse and fellow city. This vision will cover the urban, technical, financial and social aspects of transition and include a roadmap on planning, implementation, replication and scale-up of successful smart-city solutions. To reach this objective SPARCs will:
- Set high-level strategic ambitions based on a thorough city diagnosis and develop a comprehensive understanding of the drivers for change;
- Set up a participatory methodology allowing for the development of the Roadmap for Urban Transformation;
- Involve local stakeholders in each city in an on-site strategic week, ensuring the development of a vision that is truly embedded in each city's specific context;
- Foster the creation of urban environments in which automated, multi-modal and on-demand mobility systems are integrated, promoting the transition towards a green Circular Economy.
