The Digital Transformation for Urban Resilience from EIT Digital Master School focus area explores the deployment of disruptive IT technologies for information, mobility and safety services in cities. A key factor in safety of a city is resilience, including resilience towards natural disasters e.g. heavy weather, earth quakes, building fires, and towards man-made events e.g. terrorist attacks.

Overview

Adding IT technologies to existing management approaches will allow new ways of decentralised and collaborative communication and coordination, data and event recording and replay, and post-event analysis. The design of such a supportive IT structure is typically an example of “digital transformation” where existing organisations (companies, local municipality administrations, police, fire guards, hospitals, citizens) will have to find new ways of working through a collaborative and interactive change process. 

Education

Organizations, and especially those related to the public sector, often face challenges related to adaptation to new administrative and operational procedures because of employment of disruptive IT technology. This becomes even more of a problem when change is continuous and accelerating, as not all organizations are flexible enough to survive in these conditions and often show cultural and organisational inertia.

The end goal of the Digital Transformation for Urban Resilience from EIT Digital Master School is to provide scenarios and solutions that address concrete problems of stakeholders, developed with the help of digital technologies. In this view, cities, companies and administrations are seen as enablers, as they provide a common (physical) ground in which other stakeholders operate and collaborate. The final solutions will be presented as pitches for experiments that could be conducted by the involved organizations. As such students will not pitch a business venture, but a more strategic plan for applying digital transformation.
