Avrions help people live as global citizens, peacefully in inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable cities. Serving as a laboratory of ideas, it fosters the free flow of ideas and knowledge sharing.
Avrions is a project to explore the technological world we are living in, explain and create expertise in the field of the Smart City.
For this reason, Avrions strategy is to describe current projects from different cities, and universities, the opinions, and visions of contemporary smart city thinkers considering these realities as a major and unexploited deposit of ideas for innovation.
Avrions, takes into account that many regions are lagging behind in terms of innovation even if they might include many active research centers. Recognizing the urban reality of each one, as well as the nature of the information that transcends borders, Avrions is aiming to use the concepts of transnational cooperation, networking and free sharing of information in order to overcome local innovation deficits.
In this way, the project aims to bridge the gap between architects, researchers, R&D creators, producers, financiers, and citizens by facilitating the distribution of information.
