EUNOIA is formed by interdisciplinary partners that contribute to attain the project's goals with their expertise in different fields. The following is a list with the name of each partner, clicking on each of them a more detailed description is shown.




Instituto de Física Interdisciplinar y Sistemas Complejos, Universitat de les Illes Balears

The Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems (IFISC) is a joint research unit between the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB) and the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). The IFISC was created in 2007, building upon the former Cross-Disciplinary Physics Department of the Mediterranean Institute for Advance Studies (IMEDEA), dating from 1995. The backbone of IFISC’s research is the study of generic phenomena in nonlinear physics and complex systems, with strong methodological components from statistical physics, dynamical systems, computational methods, and quantum mechanics. IFISC has 57 researchers from 15 different countries. Since 2007, IFISC has participated in or coordinated 12 European projects, including STREPs (PICASSO, IOLOS), NEST projects (EDEN, PATRES), and COST actions.

Nommon Solutions and Technologies S.L.

Nommon Solutions and Technologies is an SME founded in 2012 and based in Madrid, which provides decision support tools and consulting services for the design, optimisation, and management of socio-technical systems. Nommon applies the state-of-the-art in complex systems science and information technologies to mine real-world data sets in order to seek apparently hidden relations in the behaviour of complex socio-technical systems. These relations are then translated into predictive models to analyse the cause-effect relationships between control variables and performance indicators, and the trade-offs therein. Nommon works in sectors dealing with systems whose performance emerges from the complex interaction of interdependent policies and regulatory regimes, demographic and sociological trends, infrastructures, technologies, and market conditions: air transport, urban mobility, smart cities, logistics and supply chain, energy, environment and climate change.



Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, University College London

CASA is a research centre within University College London developing computer technologies in several disciplines which deal with geography, space, location, and the built environment. Expertise is drawn from archaeology, architecture, cartography, computer science, environmental science, geography, planning, remote sensing, geomatic engineering, and transport. CASA currently has 15 Research Fellows and about 10 PhDs, all working on problems that involve GIS, geodemographics, agent-based urban modelling, online mapping, and virtual reality/CAD methods in urban design. Funding comes from various sources, and comprises grants from EPSRC, ESRC, JISC, and NERC/RCUK through the Tyndall Centre for climate change. There is now a focus on complexity theory as the underlying logic to underpin much of the work on modelling and simulation. The centre is involved in developing large scale land use transport models for Greater London and the Thames Gateway, as part of an integrated assessment of climate change which is part of the Tyndall Centre work on cities.

Institut de Physique Théorique, Commissariat à l’Énergie Atomique et aux Énergies Alternatives

The Institut de Physique Théorique (IPhT) of the Commissariat à l’Énergie Atomique et aux Énergies Alternatives (CEA) is a laboratory of fundamental research, located in Saclay, about 20 km south-west of Paris. The research performed at the IPhT aims at better understanding the laws which govern our universe and its organisation. It encompasses most of the great subjects of modern theoretical physics. The IPhT comprises about fifty permanent physicists (two thirds from CEA, one third from CNRS) and thirty PhD students and postdocs, assisted by a support staff of about ten people. The IPhT also hosts permanently many short term visitors.

Institut für Verkehrsplanung und Transportsysteme, Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich

The Institute for Transport Planning and Systems (IVT) at ETH Zürich is the oldest and largest Swiss research institute dedicated to transport engineering and planning. The Transport Planning group, under the direction of Prof. Axhausen, has currently 20 staff members addressing all aspects of travel and spatial behaviour and their translation into operational (agent-based) models. ETH Zürich is a federally funded university with a focus on the natural sciences and engineering, consistently ranked as the best university of continental Europe. It currently has about 380 professors and 7.500 staff members, and it teaches 15,000 students. 

Antonio Lucio Gil

Antonio Lucio works as an independent consultant based in London. Previously, he served at the Lawyer Corps of Madrid Regional Parliament, where he worked in the Environment Committee (1991-2001); he was General Director for Environmental Enforcement and Promotion in the region of Madrid (2001-2003); he was the Head of Environment and Sustainability of the Olympics Bid ‘Madrid 2012’ (2003-2005); and ran the Mobility Foundation of the City of Madrid (2005-2011), whose main project was the Madrid Mobility Round Table, where policy assessment tools worked as a catalyst for coordination across municipal government, consensus building between Public Administrations and all kinds of stakeholders, development of living labs to assess new initiatives for urban mobility, and education and awareness of citizens. Currently his main projects are the definition of the business strategy for a transport on demand company in London and in the major Brazilian cities, and the development of a new label for companies that promote sustainable mobility, commissioned by Madrid Metropolitan Transport Authority. In parallel, he is working as advisor on urban mobility for a variety of organisations.

Institut Municipal d'Informàtica, Ajuntament de Barcelona

Considering the Metropolitan Area, with more than 3.5 million inhabitants, Barcelona is the sixth largest metropolitan and fifth largest industrial agglomeration in Europe. Barcelona is also a thriving tourist city. Today, Barcelona is considered as an international leader in smart city development. The municipality believes that innovation through smart services development, both for internal use— applying to a better decision making processes as well as policy making—and for citizens’ use in their daily interaction with the city facilities and public spaces, is the main lever to transform public administration, increasing efficiency and raising citizens’ quality of life. The Institut Municipal d‘Informàtica (IMI, Municipal Institute of Information Technologies) is an autonomous entity belonging to the Barcelona City Council devoted to provide ICT solutions and to promote ICT-driven innovation in the entire municipality and the rest of autonomous institutes and public bodies related with the Barcelona City Council. Along with Urbanism, Housing, Environment, Energy and Urban Services, IMI is the part of the Urban Habitat Directorate, which is responsible for the definition of the Smart City strategy of the city.
