Objective of the projects portfolio

Wal-e-Cities is a research project participating to the development of Smart Cities in Wallonia. Wallonia consists of medium-size cities in a rural and urban small territory, with 5 main attractive and innovative poles. The Smart City concept is thus considered at a Smart Region level.

Wal-e-Cities aims to build innovative citizen driven IoT solutions in mobility, energy efficiency, governance and smart living. All of these developments are based on new wireless communication channels using street furniture and public lighting lighting. 

Wal-e-Cities is also market-oriented to facilitate the development of innovative ecosystems driving technological breakthroughs, addressing societal challenge, fostering start-ups, and giving Walloon companies a competitive advantage.

This projet is co-funded by the European Union (ERDF) and the Walloon Government.
