The Afurada Living Lab project brings together an international consortium with a view to the transition to a low-carbon economy

The Afurada territory is the focus of this project recently approved by the EEA Grants programme “Environment, Climate Change and Low Carbon Economy”.

The Afurada Living Lab is a strategic and technological partnership that aims to test innovative solutions in the parish of Afurada, on the banks of the Douro River.

Through the development, prototyping and validation of technologies and services, this project seeks to address complex urban problems to mitigate carbon emissions and improve responsiveness to climate change.

The partnership involves a diverse range of entities such as the Municipality of Vila Nova de Gaia, CEDES, GAIURB, CEiiA, Ubiwhere, DST Group, Watt-Is and NTNU (Norwegian University of Science and Technology).

Over a period of 3 years different actions and activities focused on the following thematic areas will be implemented: “Sustainable Urban Mobility”, “Circular Economy and Environment” and “Buildings and Energy”.
