Due to its range (all of Catalonia), its scalability (any sector of activity), complexity, cost and impact, the T-mobility is probably the most crosscutting, powerful and smartest project that is being carried through in Catalonia.
Built upon contactless technology and inspired in the experiences of citizen cards from Hong Kong, Singapore and London, the project will be unfold in the public transport network of Catalonia in two phases: a first T1 for the Metropolitan Region of Barcelona and a second T2 for the rest of Catalonia.
The system is designed so that the T-Mobility would be a card with functional scalability that will allow the payment of other systems such as motorways, bicing, car parks, etc.et

Behind the project, there is a committee coordinated by the Centre of Vision by Computer, the UAB and the Sant Cugat council. It also includes the Neighbourhood Association from Volpelleres and the Diputació of Barcelona, and it is open to the participation of both small and big size businesses.
The Library Living Lab consists of a physical space of a hundred square meters at the Miquel Batllori library, from where it is explored how technology can transform the experiences from the users with the culture, through a series of lines of work that are sided with on-going social challenges and from the actual library.
Those challenges are regularly examined by work groups through activities, open workshops, public presentations of prototypes, scientific experiments open to the public participation, debates and innovation projects with public institutions such as research centres, universities and foundations.et
