Deliverables are specific outputs or outcomes associated to individual work packages (WP).

They are produced to achieve a certain objective or goal in the project implementation of SPARCS and aim at contributing to advancing science, innovation, and societal challenges cities are facing.



The main goal of WP1 is to develop a methodological approach for cities to transition to zero-carbon ecosystems, focusing on citizen welfare. This includes creating a shared vision for each city in 2050, assisting in the urban transformation process, involving local stakeholders, adopting effective business models, evaluating city performance, and integrating energy data digitally.

WP2 aims to develop a methodology for monitoring and evaluating the impact of SPARCS interventions using Key Performance Indicators. This will assess the technical, environmental, social, and economic aspects of the project, track long-term effects, and create an information infrastructure to share achievements with stakeholders.

The main objectives of WP3 are to demonstrate energy solutions in specific areas, improve energy efficiency and achieve a carbon neutral energy system in Espoo by 2030. This involves increasing interoperability between different systems through ICT, boosting e-mobility, engaging citizens in the energy transition, developing business models, and supporting sustainable lifestyles.

The main objectives of WP4 are to showcase energy solutions that actively contribute to the Leipzig energy system, improve energy performance and efficiency, enhance interoperability by means of ICT between smart buildings, smart grid and district heating, and enable new business models. The project also aims to involve stakeholders and facilitate the replication of solutions in other cities.

The main goal of WP5 is to replicate and scale up energy solutions contributing to Energy Positive Districts in Espoo and Leipzig, as well as in the Fellow and other cities. This is done in close cooperation with all other work packages. The objectives include developing knowledge transfer mechanisms between lighthouse and other cities, creating implementation plans, and enabling joint procurement for cross-border collaboration.

WP6 aims to share knowledge and collaborate with other Smart Cities and Communities projects, as well as other European projects and initiatives. The objectives are to share project experience, develop practical recommendations, coordinate cooperation, and facilitate networking and knowledge exchange between SPARCs cities and other cities across Europe.

The main outcome of WP7 is to create an effective and scalable business ecosystem that supports the transformation processes and aligns with the Smart City 2050 vision. This involves defining business models, financing schemes, and governance models, as well as identifying city needs and developing innovative services. The goal is to commercialize the SPARCS results and deploy cutting-edge concepts and technologies that enhance the impact of the project.

WP8 focuses on disseminating the solutions, developments, and recommendations of the project at both the EU and local levels. This involves building and coordinating effective communication channels, raising awareness and supporting dissemination collaboration. The goal is to promote knowledge sharing and exploitation of best practices related to the project while reaching a wide range of audiences.
