Future Cities

Action Plane : Raise international awareness

The Center of Competence for Future Cities involves working with mentoring institutes based at prestigious universities in Europe, namely Supélec, University College London (UCL) and the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), which have agreed to serve as mentors by sharing their knowledge and promoting the exchange of key personnel. In addition, it is the project's intent to continue to deepen the strong partnerships established with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), which include joint research and training programs.Mentoring Institutes


The collaboration with Alcatel-Lucent Chair of Flexible Radio at École Supérior d’Électricité (Supélec) and its head Professor Mérouane Debbah is essential to expand the existing expertise in large-scale urban wireless networking.University College London (UCL)

Through close cooperation with the Communications and Information Systems Group, in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at University College London our research groups acquire essential knowledge in fast system architectures for access networks, communication technologies, traffic analysis and network management.Royal Institute of Technology (KTH)

The ACCESS Linnaeus Centre at KTH led by Professor Karl Henrik Johansson helps Future Cities' research groups attain excellence in networked and distributed control and estimation. Professor Panos Papadimitratus, also from KTH, works with Future Cities in strengthening their expertise in cyber-security and critical infrastructure protection.
