Triangulum: Smart cities, sustainable societies

Triangulum is an EU Horizon 2020 project, aimed at transforming designated urban districts into smart quarters in three forerunner cities and then transfer the concepts to three further cities.

23 European partners from urban municipalities, research, and industry are involved. Visit the EU Triangulum website here.

As one of those partners, University of Stavanger researchers will contribute to the project with cloud computing technology and energy efficiency expertise.

The activities are centred around the university's Centre for IP-based Service Innovation (CIPSI)

Three cities

The project will implement pioneering concepts in the three cities of Manchester (UK), Eindhoven (Netherlands), and Stavanger (Norway) with support from the European Union.

Subsequently, the concepts will be transferred to Leipzig (Germany), Prague (Czech Republic), and Sabadell (Spain). The project emerged from the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft’s Morgenstadt (city of tomorrow) initiative.

The Triangulum project is part of the EU Horizon 2020 framework programme for research and innovation.
