Experimenting with the Internet of Things in the context of the city

The SmartSantander project, currently active in the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Community for research and technological development, announces the second Open Call for new project partners to submit proposal for experimentation on the project’s test facility.

Open Call Summary

The SmartSantander project is offering up to 100K Euros funding contribution for innovative applications and services, middleware developments as well as protocols and technologies that use the SmartSantander experimental facilities.

The aim is to stimulate, demand and establish a methodology of experimentally driven research as well as expand the service, protocol and technology offering of the platform towards experimentation, but also the public. The funding will be allocated through a series of open calls. The second open call opens 1st October 2012 and will close on 14th November 2012, targeting the Internet of Things and Smart City communities.

The SmartSantander is a unique experimental facility as it is deployed in a real city, with citizens using the services offered by the platform. It also strives to be the largest public Internet of Things test bed with a deployment of over 12,000 actuators, sensors and tags by the year 2013, with additional sites in Guildford, Belgrade and Lübeck adding another 8,000 sensors.

We welcome submissions targeting:

• Innovative applications/services in the framework of the smart city supported by IoT technology.

• Middleware developments bridging applications and technologies, allowing a plug and play approach.

• Protocols/technologies for maximising efficiency & sustainability of IoT deployments in the smart city.


The city and its partners welcome you to experiment on it!
