MobiGoIn aims to establish a Smart Mobility focused European Strategic Clusters Partnership to promote clusters’internationalisation by developing a joint strategy aimed at supporting SMEs in their internationalisation process beyond Europe, and to intensify clusters and networks collaboration across borders, breaking sectorial boundaries.
MobiGoIn focuses in the Smart Mobility industry with a cross-sectoral approach regarding the development and adoption of (i) intelligent and cooperative transport solutions, which might be implemented as systems and/or services that take into consideration the needs of the final users; (ii) applications for fleet management, freight transport and last mile logistics optimization through the implementation of geolocation technologies; and (iii) enabling solutions for the usage, management and integration of green vehicles used for public and private transport in an urban and suburban context.
MobiGoIn partners collectively constitute a high profile partnership fully capable of achieving all project objectives, thanks to a right mix of competences and expertise. The Consortium is formed by four clusters located in four different European countries: Fondazione Torino Wireless, an Italian innovation and technological cluster focus on ICT and Smart Cities and Communities; Bwcon, a German technological cluster on ICT for Baden-Württemberg’s traditional industrial sectors; Mov’eo, a French mobility R&D competitiveness cluster; and Media Evolution, a southern Swedish technological cluster on media industries.
MobiGoIn Consortium represents a total of circa 1100 SMEs, which will be involved in the definition of the activities of MobiGoIn’s Internationalisation Strategy, which will dictate the services and actions Clusters will follow in order to support and strengthen the competitiveness of SMEs in the international Smart Mobility Market.

The Torino Wireless Foundation participates in the Reval project (Reseau Velo Alpes Latines), funded under the 2014-2020 Alcotra program, which is aimed at¬†the development of cycling tourism in the surrounding areas of the city of Cuneo and Chambery and extent of paths suitable to favor more sustainable mobility of residents.
Partner: City of Cuneo, Tourist Office Chambery, Velorizons, ATL Cuneo, Conitours, Tetra.
The project involves the activation of a series of cycling facilities along the existing cycle network between the two border cities (both on its own headquarters, both on low attendance secondary roads), also available through a mobile application that will be developed within the project.
The role of Torino Wireless is to provide support to the project partners in identifying the most effective and innovative solutions in response to the needs expressed by the territory by involving Italian and French ICT companies, stakeholders and end users.

Through SUMPs-Up, an experienced consortium of public and private organisations, including four major city networks and seven frontrunner¬†cities, skilled in coordinating major European SUMP projects will accelerate the take-up of SUMPs, where this is currently low, ensuring that¬†SUMP is the primary mobility planning concept in Europe. To achieve this, the project will combine comprehensive SUMP research, tailored¬†capacity-building, strong mechanisms for financial support, as well as constant SUMP monitoring and evaluation. As a result, the project will¬†accelerate the development of 100 SUMPs, reach out to 600 cities and will therefore engage about 80% of the EU-cities above 50,000 inhabitants.
SUMPs-Up will review, strengthen and integrate existing SUMP resources, designing a support system to assist cities to develop high quality¬†SUMPs. A SUMP Tool Inventory will help mobility planners make better informed decisions about which planning tools to apply in their local¬†context. This will be enriched with experiences from the city partners who will be testing innovative solutions in SUMP preparation and¬†implementation.
An Activity Fund will provide €1 million of financial support to planning authorities, complemented by a peer learning programme,¬†to leverage resources and enable more cities to apply the SUMP concept. At Member State level, SUMPs-Up will foster exchange to improve¬†national SUMP frameworks. Close monitoring and evaluation of the project and funded activities will show evidence of the SUMP concept’s value¬†and serve as a quality control mechanism for both project activities and the SUMPs being developed. SUMPs-Up will broadly communicate the¬†positive impacts of SUMPs, producing and disseminating insightful reports and research. Ultimately, SUMPs-Up will stimulate a European¬†movement of mobility planning authorities experienced in preparing and implementing SUMPs in compliance with the European requirements.
Torino Wireless¬†will present and represent the City of Turin and its experience in the development of plans SUMP. On the other side - as a National Cluster - will spread and offer the services and the tools defined in the project to learning cities. As an example, La Spezia, Vercelli, Genoa, Milan, Messina and Lecce have already expressed interest in the project.

The goal of the hub is to interconnect the Pedmont’s ecosystem of innovation in digital manufacturing to the¬†existing network of I4MS competence centers and digital innovation hubs in Europe.¬†The hub will have its core specialization on advanced laser-based applications (including additive¬†manufacturing), due to the leadership that Piedmont has at the European level in this sector, with the presence¬†of leading technology vendors, research centers and lead users of such technologies, in particular in the¬†aerospace and automotive businesses.
In addition, the DiMa HUB intends to widen the adoption of other¬†relevant technologies, including: Robotics, since the manufacturing ecosystem in Piedmont offers a large supplyof technologies and applications; Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) and Internet of Things (IoT), for which Piedmont¬†has become a reference Region in Europe in the past years; and High Performance Computing (HPC) powered¬†cloud based modelling and simulation services, where a high demand in Piedmont exists and the local¬†universities (which are included in the project) have started accumulating competencies, infrastructures and¬†networking capabilities.¬†
The hub will find a fertile ground in Piedmont given the capability of this region to foster networking,¬†knowledge brokerage and collaboration, hi-tech entrepreneurship within its innovation ecosystem. Such¬†competencies have ignited the transition of Piedmont to digital manufacturing.
The project is coordinated by the Politecnico di Torino¬†with a partnership involving the key stakeholders at the regional level: University of Turin, MESAP (Innovation Cluster of the Piedmont Region dedicated to Smart Products and the Smart Manufacturing), Fondazione Torino Wireless (Innovation Cluster of the Piedmont Region dedicated to ICT) and Istituto Superiore Mario Boella-ISMB.
