Our Role
1. The definition of specific scenarios with the finality to negotiate with available infrastructures to support Safecity functionality, considering the involvement of main cities in Europe as Madrid, Helsinki, Athens, Bucharest, Stockholm etc along others. An Experts Committee integrated by other relevant European cities and Public Safety agencies will support this project. 2. Collection of specific enablers, technical and functional requirements on the Future Internet in relation with Public Safety in contraposition of the generic ones and how the business process may be supported. 3. Elaboration of a conceptual Safecity prototypes and early trials in order to study the feasibility of this initiative. The demonstration of the concept will be carried out in Madrid as main city but other specific requirements will be demonstrated in a second city as Stockholm due to the contrast with Madrid. 4. A strong liaison with other FI-PPP use cases and the FI Core Platform. For that, Safecity will support the FI-PPP Essential Interworking programme governance and activities that will ensure the integration of the Project activities across the whole programme. 5. Establishing a coherent dissemination plan in line with the overall FI PPP initiatives.
