The Department of Information Technologies (ICT.Moscow) and the city of Moscow in Russia have published an English-language catalogue of its smart city solutions online.
“The new catalogue allows the city to share its experience and innovative practices with international partners and analysts in a convenient format,” said Eduard Lysenko, minister of the Moscow Government and head of the government’s IT department.
The current information on 68 smart city projects includes datasets and analytics and relevant UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), where applicable. The SDGs are a set of goals for future international cooperation that will ensure openness, security, resilience, and environmental sustainability of cities by the year 2030.
“The Russian capital systematically introduces various IT solutions into the everyday life of Muscovites and the work of city services. At the same time, the key goal of innovation is to improve the safety and quality of life of citizens. That is why relevant UN Sustainable Development Goals, which are aimed at improving human wellbeing and protecting the environment, are indicated for all projects presented in the catalogue,” added Lysenko.
The projects are classified into areas such as human and social capital, urban environment, digital government, urban economy, end-to-end technologies, digital technologies, and communications. Some of the projects included are the Uniform Medical Information and Analytical System (UMIAS), Moscow Electronic School, the official website of the Mayor of Moscow (mos.ru), The Moscow Innovation Cluster (i.moscow), the 5G demo center, and Moscow’s experimental legal regime in the field of AI.
Earlier this year, the city published an English language version of Russia’s blockchain knowledge base presenting 52 use cases of blockchain in various industries in the country.
