Aveiro Tech City is an initiative promoted by the City of Aveiro which aims to use technology as a means to improve the quality of living of local citizens and helping governance entities to collect and share relevant information about new exciting ways to manage the city in areas of mobility, education, culture and environment. Aveiro Tech City will transform the urban area in a living lab – a testbed where businesses, projects and services are developed, trialled and implemented. Aveiro Tech City proposes to learn and experiment new technology as a vehicle to build a sustainable society. A city capable to create more opportunities for those who live, work and visit Aveiro.
Aveiro Tech City brings together citizens, companies, R&D institutes and state-of-the-art technology to redefine how to live and work in a digital and connected city. The goal is to build and develop a smarter city, transforming its territory in a technology driven place, as a way to address complex urban issues and citizens’ needs.
Imagine a city with endless possibilities: new businesses, more job opportunities, better health services and public transports; safer streets; skilled and engaged citizens. At the end of the day, city’s life comes from those who live in and work and those who transform it. Aveiro Tech City is not only about technology, or connected sensors and devices. Is about citizens and how to create a city with a competitive economy, sustainable environment and most of all a liveable and enjoyable city. Aveiro Tech City is committed with the community and its future. It’s a city made by citizens and for the citizens.
