Territorial Intelligence

i-Território: Modelação Inteligente do Acesso Territorial a Serviços de Interesse Geral

Project focused on General Interest Services, combining information that results from the combination of 2 perspectives, complementary to each other:

  • Sectorial perspective: Addresses the structured organization of equipment and services, seeking to ensure universal coverage for all citizens
  • Territorial perspective: Approach based on the characterization of the national territory and its specificities, referring to a spatial expression of asymmetric supply and demand for territorial diversity. The territories are different and for that reason they will bring constraints to the way each citizen will actually have access to these services.

The general objectives of this operation are as follows:

  • Support the General Directorate of Territory (DGT) as the entity responsible for planning the national territory, to implement the instruments that allow it, based on an innovative strategy to point to a decentralized and interoperable approach, based on open data and involving the participation of various bodies of the Public Administration and one or more universities/research centers, provide information on citizens’ access to General Interest Services;
  • Support DGT in the exercise of its attributions, to implement a prototype based on equipment data from relevant sectors: Health; Education, Social Security and Sports
  • Support the DGT in the regular monitoring and evaluation of land use and urban planning policies and sectoral policies with an impact on the organization of the territory;
  • Strengthen the capacity for integrated analysis of information, namely in terms of services of general interest;
  • Increase the production of territorial knowledge and innovation in terms of territorial management;
  • Have a support instrument for the Spatial Planning and Urbanism Observatory;
  • Improve service levels and increase user satisfaction (focus on effectiveness);
  • Greater and better interaction with the Public Administration, citizens and companies and clarification of processes and responsibilities regarding the production and availability of information.

Região Inteligente Algarve (RIA)
The RIA project is a cross-sectional project, aggregating others such as Smart Cities, Smart Tourism Destination or Smart Transport and Energy Networks, which aims to promote the involvement of regional quad propeller actors (Municipalities, Universities, I & amp; D, Companies, Civil Society), leveraging regional development and the implementation of the Regional Strategy for Research and Innovation for Intelligent Specialization (RIS3 Algarve), motivating a dynamic of the future based on innovation, qualification and competitiveness, reinforcing the capacity to affirmation of regional institutions.

The Região Inteligente do Algarve (RIA) was a challenge launched at the 1st meeting of the Regional Innovation Council of the Algarve (CIRA), this Council being an advisory body to the Algarve Regional Coordination and Development Commission (CCDR Algarve), foreseen in the Regional Strategy for Research and Innovation for Intelligent Specialization (RIS3 Algarve) involving about 70 entities. After approval by CIRA members, a working group was created composed of supra-municipal entities and specialists to discuss this issue and point out ways to achieve the RIA.

This application aims, therefore, to strengthen the training of the entities that integrate the partnership, namely the respective technical teams, but also to contribute to the training of regional stakeholders, involving them and making them an effective part of the joint construction processes of the Algarve Smart Region, based on the digitization of the economy and the promotion of regional development.

For the materialization of this application, the importance of networking is highlighted, being presented by a partnership led by CCDR Algarve and with the following entities: Universidade do Algarve, Algarve Tourism Region and Algarve Intermunicipal Community (CIM Algarve) .

With the advent of COVID-19, it became even more imperative to diagnose, treat and monitor patients through telehealth, minimizing the movement of citizens to health institutions, maintaining the continuum of care and improving the quality of services provided by the NHS. In technological terms, natural evolution involves increasing the use of various digital channels, starting by optimizing the sharing of information in good time between citizens with illness and the various health agents through more advanced digital interfaces, and new support tools diagnosis and decision for doctors and health professionals. It is for this purpose that the PLANO-A-SAÚDE-C19 is developed.

The mapping of the needs and requirements of doctors and citizens with the pathology that can be served by the platform was done by ULSBA and EM, institutions that provide healthcare in these areas. The design and architecture of the platform was developed in a consortium between GS, ISEL, NOVA IMS, EM and ULSBA. The platform includes components designed to support the activities of the outpatient monitoring process.

The solution will also allow patients to have a more active role in various decision-making processes, being more involved in controlling their disease and relating more effectively and closely with their doctors and health units.

Understanding the interaction of people with the territory of CIM Oeste, based on data from the registration and use of Wi-Fi access points (involving the space and time dimensions in the analysis), the project will provide an application that better the experience of those who visit , lives and works in the intermunicipal community taking advantage of the crossing of data from municipal operating systems with data originating from Wi-Fi networks, aiming to provide dynamic information in space and time and supporting contextual marketing actions.


In the context of combating a pandemic such as that currently caused by the outbreak of COVID-19, and considering that a large part of the problems that occurred were difficult to anticipate, it is now clear that the response capacity and, above all, the effectiveness of the solutions developed, it will significantly benefit from a greater sharing of information between the multiple levels of management of our society.

The Data4Covid19 project proposes the development of a platform that enhances the crossing of multiple data sources in an integrated manner, allowing the relevant entities in each of the areas of action to design, implement, and monitor, in an articulated way, measures to combat pandemic.

The proposed action plan intends to guarantee the availability of instruments that contribute, from now on, to a better management of the current situation, but also, that enables an effective retention of knowledge, fundamental for the future combat of situations of the same type, whether in planning and construction of public policies, either in management. Through the ability to aggregate and process multisectoral information, it will be possible to obtain real-time indicators of the measures implemented, in terms of risk management and impact assessment in each of the phases.

This is an application to the R & D Companies typology, in the co-promotion modality, with the promoting consortium consisting of 3 non-business entities from the national I & amp; I system and 2 companies: the Porto Digital Association, the project’s leading entity, the University do Porto, Universidade Nova de Lisboa, NOS COMUNICAÇÕES, SA and TekPrivacy, Lda, as co-motors.
