The Cork Smart Gateway recognises the interconnection of urban and rural areas and strives to develop regional infrastructure which will promote well-being, prosperity, productivity and innovation
Cork Smart Gateway
The Cork Smart Gateway works to identify and deploy smart solutions to seize emerging opportunities, solve regional challenges and enhance the reputation of Cork as an attractive place to live, work, visit and invest.
Mobility and congestion are challenges for many cities including Cork. Organisations in Cork are turning to technology to provide better, faster, more sustainable and cheaper ways for citizens to get around.
Urban areas represent 75% of energy consumption and 80% of CO2 emissions worldwide. Combining digital technology with the energy ecosystem will enable a better quality of life, reduced energy consumption and will help meet the needs of the increasing urban population.
Innovation is the driver of Smart Cities as it provides new knowledge that can be turned into value. The Cork Smart Gateway believes that collaboration fosters innovation which is central to realising the vision for Cork of a Smart Region.
