La xarxa de recerca en ciutats intel·ligents i sostenibles consisteix en un projecte on s'articulen les diverses capacitats i activitats d'investigació multidisciplinar de diferents grups, departaments, centres, serveis tècnics, parc de recerca i infraestructures de campus de l'esfera UAB-CEI en aquest àmbit.

La CORE de Ciutats Intel·ligents i sostenibles està localitzat en la Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. La xarxa està composta per especialistes científics en àrees relacionades amb la gestió dels entorns urbans de forma sostenible. Els temes d’interès de la xarxa inclouen diverses activitats com els aspectes més econòmics i sociològics del disseny industrial ecològic, el desenvolupament de noves polítiques públiques de disseny urbà i l'aplicació de tecnologies específiques per trobar solucions innovadores per a la gestió de l'energia, els residus, l'aigua i la mobilitat.

El projecte CORE de ciutats te una estructura flexible per proporcionar solucions tecnològicament eficients a qüestions i problemàtiques socials específiques. El seu objectiu és donar suport a les necessitats del territori millorant el coneixement i les eines actuals. El projecte CORE pretén coordinar actuacions i compartir recursos per impulsar les potencialitats en recerca i transferència de coneixement de l'Esfera UABCEI en un node de referència a nivell europeu.

This paper evaluates smart city (SC) initiatives in the context of re-using vacant property. More specifically, we focus on living labs (LL) and vacancy in general, as well as on their potential role in fostering creative economy-fuelled gentrification. LL utilise Lo-Fi technologies to foster local digital innovation and support community-focused civic hacking, running various kinds of workshops and engaging with local citizens to co-create digital interventions and apps aimed at ‘solving’ local issues. Five approaches to LL are outlined and discussed in relation to vacancy and gentrification: pop-up initiatives, university-led activities, community organised venues/activities, citizen sensing and crowdsourcing, and tech-led regeneration initiatives. Notwithstanding the potential for generating temporary and independent spaces for transferring and fostering digital competences and increasing citizens’ participation in the SC, we argue that LL largely foster a form of participation framed within a model of civic stewardship for ‘smart citizens’. While presented as horizontal, open, and participative, LL and civic hacking are often rooted in pragmatic and paternalistic discourses and practices related to the production of a creative economy and a specific version of SC. As such, by encouraging a particular kind of re-use of vacant space, LL potentially contributes to gentrification pressures within locales by attracting the creative classes and new investment. We discuss these approaches and issues generally and with respect to examples in Dublin, Ireland.
