Building on the city’s global reputation as a centre for design and innovation, Dundee will become a real-life test and experimentation environment for smart mobility solutions.
The MILL lies at the centre of Dundee’s smart mobility agenda. It is a programme office designed to deliver the necessary resources and expertise to establish Dundee as a real-life test and experimentation environment for smart mobility solutions. This encompasses new technologies, business models and regulatory frameworks that address current and future mobility challenges. The MILL is coordinating existing and future smart mobility projects in Dundee, as well as working to attract new projects and investments to the city. It brings together interdisciplinary experts to develop, deploy, and test – in actual living environments – new technologies and strategies to respond to current and future mobility challenges in a world with increasing globalization, urbanization and changing demographics.
As well as a Living Lab, the MILL is also working to attract new projects and investments to the city. The MILL’s programme office coordinates the living lab and its ecosystem that includes projects and partners from Dundee and further afield. It also communicates the aims, objectives and outcomes of mobility projects in Dundee, enables businesses, the public sector, citizens and academia to co-operate on enhancing mobility in the city, and helps to import and export products, services and expertise to boost Dundee’s economy and keep the city at the forefront of mobility projects. The MILL will raise the profile of Dundee and Scotland as leading international locations for smart mobility projects, benefiting stakeholders through the development of wider economic opportunities on a local, national and international basis.
