Alliance engaged in pan-Nordic consortium addressing smart mobility and connectivity
Together with members of the Nordic Urban Mobility Ecosystem and Synocus, the Alliance represented Finland in a pan-Nordic consortium’s development of a project proposal for Nordic Innovation’s call for smart mobility projects.
The project, titled Nordic Connectivity (NCD), is led by NUME Anchor organization Telia and proposes to address two mission-critical urban systems: the transport system and the energy system, and the need to integrate these due to the electrification of transportation. The interface connecting these two systems is the charging of vehicles, from small scale applications such as bikes to large ones like ferries. Herein, the project aims to develop new systems and products that meet the emerging needs of connectivity and control systems putting increasing demands on power grids.
The WALCC will serve as the communication platform for the project, utilizing its global network of research organizations, public authorities, and leading companies to spread awareness of the issues addressed in the project as well as serving as a bridge to the world.
