Overview

The SuMoCoS project (Sustainability and Mobility in the Context of Smart cities) is a travelling conference with project partners in Germany, Uzbekistan and Mogolia. It is funded by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) under the Travelling Conferences grant.

The aim of the project is to strengthen the cooperation between all project partners and to further deepen the understanding of the theoretical and practical challenges of Smart City projects in Central Asia. In addition, there will be an exchange of knowledge between the participants with the aim of deepening and promoting cooperation in research and economic projects.

Project Description

Cooperation on issues such as environmental protection and mobility can lead to new solutions for preventing and reducing air pollution. For cities confronted with the possibility of driving bans, such as Oldenburg, and for cities with high pollution levels, such as Ulaanbaatar, effective methods to reduce exhaust emissions are urgently needed. Other participating cities may be able to proactively apply the findings directly before facing similar problems. In view of this major task, the SuMoCoS project aims to strengthen the international collaboration of researchers and provide relevant scientific contributions for the development of sustainable solutions based on the Smart City approach.

Through the participation of partners from Mongolia and Uzbekistan, the added value arises that the two cities Ulaanbaatar and Tashkent not only get to know practical Smart City applications from German cities, but also from cities in another emerging country with similar (but regionally different) prerequisites, challenges and approaches. In addition, the German partners can compare the approaches in both cities and possibly gain valuable insights from the differences.

The two international partners have similar core interests (including smart city applications to reduce environmental pollution and improve mobility), but also set different priorities: While the Uzbek partners attach importance to issues such as improved security and the reduction of corruption, the Mongolian partners tend to focus on issues such as improved traffic control. These different aspects of Smart City applications complement each other well and are to be synchronized via the German partners.

The following measures are planned to implement the objectives:

  • Workshop in Ulaanbaatar: A four-day workshop with lectures by German and Mongolian partners, industry lectures, doctoral lectures and planning meetings.
  • Visit of Ulaanbaatar: Exchange with representatives of the city on the topics of sustainability and mobility.
  • Workshop in Tashkent: A four-day workshop with lectures by German and Uzbek partners, industry lectures, doctoral lectures and planning meetings.
  • Visit of Tashkent: Exchange with representatives of the city on the topics of sustainability and mobility.
  • Excursion to Samarkand: One-day excursion and exchange with MAN representatives on the subject of urban mobility.
  • Workshop in Oldenburg: One-day workshop at the end of the project and for deeper networking of the German project partners.

The added value of international cooperation lies both in deepening existing contacts (Oldenburg/Uzbekistan and Braunschweig/Mongolia) and in initiating new contacts and partnerships. Young academics are actively supported by one day each of the workshops in Tashkent and Ulaanbaatar being reserved for lectures and discussions by German, Uzbek and Mongolian doctoral students and young academics. Through the workshops and especially through the participation of both scientific and entrepreneurial partners, it will be possible to exchange knowledge and experience on sustainability and mobility in the context of a Smart City with the Uzbek and Mongolian partners. In this context, both the partners in the target countries with their urgent questions in this area and the German partners such as the City of Oldenburg can benefit from the experiences of the other international partners. In addition, it is possible to present the capabilities of German companies and research institutions, which can lead to the testing of joint activities and research and application in the field of Smart City technologies.

The international partners in Mongolia and Uzbekistan support the project organisatically, by providing space and infrastructure, as well as by the participation of competent and experienced scientists, representatives of the cities and representatives of companies.

The planned project strengthens and expands the existing cooperation with two emerging countries. This effect is reinforced by the fact that not only local representatives from the respective cities (Tashkent, Ulaanbaatar), but also representatives from other cities and institutions in the region (Urgench, Nukus, Samarkand, Mongolian Ministry of Roads and Transport, Mongolian Academy of Sciences) participate in the planned international workshops. The international partners include outstanding institutions in research and teaching in the region (TUIT University of Tashkent with several branches, Mongolian Academy of Sciences).

The topics of sustainability and mobility in the context of Smart Cities dealt with at the international workshops, but also the protection of personal rights in the implementation of Smart Cities, will occupy the participating cities from a practical point of view and the participating research institutions from a theoretical point of view even longer. Therefore there is a lot of potential for further projects. The DLR Institute of Transport Systems Engineering can draw on very detailed projects on urban mobility, while the University of Oldenburg looks more closely at smart cities from different perspectives (sensor-based environmental information systems, energy concepts, legal considerations, mobility in urban and regional networks, etc.). Together with the partners involved, a competence atlas "Smart Cities" is to be drawn up at the end of 2019.
