Workshop: Smart cities, diverse disciplinary perspectives

Technical change, especially in the form of digitalisation, is transforming our economy and society. Cities are in the forefront of this transformation. One of the biggest policy challenges today, involving governments at all levels, business and the citizenry at large, consists of reworking the way our cities are planned, built and managed.

The term smart city encapsulates the idea that cities (of all sizes) ought to effectively integrate physical, technological and human systems in the built environment in a sustainable way, to the benefit of its citizens. This workshop will explore different approaches that may help shape the smart city policy space.
