AI4Cities: Tallinn to take part in project focused on finding smart solutions for achieving climate neutrality

With the help of the European funding programme Horizon 2020, project AI4Cities aimed at smart solutions achieved through artificial intelligence will be carried out.

AI4Cities was created with the goal of speeding up the process of achieving climate neutrality in European cities in the mobility and energetics sectors through smart solutions. The city of Tallinn will partake in the project as a partner, coordinating the pan-European mobility procurement process.

On 23 September, a hackathon will take place for the project where the representatives of partner cities introduce the needs of each individual city and their expectations in the context of achieving climate neutrality. This project will be a dialogue between the public and private sectors, the goal of which is to find smart solutions that involve artificial intelligence and can improve mobility. Mart Bauer, project manager for the Competence Centre of International Projects and Grigori Parfjonov, expert for the Transport Department, will be taking part in the mentor sessions of the hackathon.

In the following stage of the project, product prototypes will be developed, followed by tests in real-life situations. The project will be concluded by commercialising the products and giving the partner cities the rights to use them. If all goes according to plan, we will be one step closer to achieving climate neutrality by 2050.

AI4Cities is a three-year EU funding project that brings flagship artificial intelligence solution companies and six European regions together. In addition to Tallinn, Helsinki, Stavanger, Copenhagen, Amsterdam and Paris will be taking part in the project.
