Ideal-Cities project, which BlueSoft is part of, organized and run the 1st International workshop on Smart Circular Economy (SmaCE). The workshop was co-located with the IEEE annual International Conference on Distributed Computing in Sensor Systems (DCOSS 2019) at Santorini Island, Greece. During the workshop there have been a publication IDEAL-CITIES – A Trustworthy and Sustainable Framework for Circular Smart Cities presented. As per abstract Reflecting upon the sustainability challenges cities will be facing in the near future and the recent technological developments allowing cities to become “smart”, we introduce IDEAL-CITIES; a framework aiming to provide an architecture for cyber-physical systems to deliver a data-driven Circular Economy model in a city context. In the IDEAL CITIES ecosystem, the city’s finite resources, as well as citizen, will form the pool of intelligent assets in order to contribute to high utilization through crowdsourcing and real-time decision making and planning. We describe two use cases as a vehicle to demonstrate how a smart city can serve the Circular Economy paradigm. Paper related to smart cities presented at International workshop on Smart Circular Economy Being aware of the urgency of the economy shift towards more sustainable and circular models, BlueSoft delivers many solutions improving and enabling circularity of our customers business models and operations. Moreover we are involved in many R&D initiatives focusing on pairing ICT solutions with Circular Economy in order to boost implementation of those principles.  Link to the paper is available here.
