Beato Living Lab Creative Hub officially launched!

On 27th May, the Beato Living Lab Creative Hub project was officially launched in Lisbon, Portugal.

The Beato Living Lab Creative Hub is an initiative that aims to develop new technologies and services to promote sustainability and establish good practices to mitigate the impact of climate change. 

Startup Lisboa, the entity responsible for the design and management of the Beato Creative Hub, created the Living Lab to implement pilot projects with the technical coordination of Lisboa E-Nova, Lisbon City Council as the main partner and partial funding from EEA Grants(1).

Right from the start, Startup Lisboa integrated sustainability as a core dimension of the project as the Beato Creative Hub aims to be exemplary in mobilising and implementing urban strategies for sustainability and environmental resilience. The projects to be developed in this living lab will focus on four priority areas:

  • Energy;
  • Buildings; 
  • Mobility;
  • Circular Economy & Environment. 

Through nine different series of actions and in collaboration with partners from the public and private sectors like Schréder, the Beato Creative Hub will achieve its ambition of becoming a smart campus and a permanent living laboratory with a view to transition to a carbon-neutral society.

Hub Criativo do Beato 2

We want Beato Creativo Hub to be a smart campus of excellence and contribute to improving the project's environmental sustainability with the innovative operations we are launching today. Through this living lab, we also hope to motivate the city's entrepreneurial ecosystem to integrate sustainable solutions in the creation and development of their businesses, as well as inspire the creation of new living labs in other entrepreneurship ecosystems.” explains Miguel Fontes, CEO of Startup Lisboa.

Through its 9 planned actions, the Beato Creative Hub Living Lab will support the creation of an innovation ecosystem for urban transformation. Schréder will be an active participant in:

Hub Criativo do Beato 3

The implementation of a Smart Public Lighting system, which will be built on the RIVARA LED luminaires already installed in the Beato Creative Hub. The luminaires will integrate sensors and IoT controllers to ensure an advanced management of the lighting system and a reduction in the energy consumption.
The RIVARA luminaires will be fitted with OWLET IoT controllers and managed by the Schréder EXEDRA platform.


Hub Criativo do Beato 4

The creation of the Beato Creative Hub i-Management Platform. This Intelligent Management Platform will collect useful data from different operations to analyse and monitor the project's main KPIs to validate the success of the smart city initiatives.
It will provide scientific and analytical knowledge for advanced city management using the Schréder EXEDRA platform.

Hub Criativo do Beato 5

The creation of a Sensing and Charging system with smart pole infrastructure integrating motion detection and environmental sensors, sound systems, CCTV and EV chargers for active mobility. This installation will be accompanied by a weather station and radiation sensors installed on the roofs of selected buildings.
This set-up will be deployed with Schréder's smart multi-functional and modular SHUFFLE pole.

Through this Living Lab, Schréder, with its Smart City Centre of Excellence, Schréder Hyperion, will test and develop applications tailored to the development of truly Smart Cities that can then be redeployed around the world with the goal of creating cities people love to live in.
