Smart City

There are many definitions of Smart Cities. Some focus on ICT as a technology driver and enabler, while broader definitions include socio-economic, governance and multi-stakeholder aspects such as the use of social participation to enhance sustainability, quality of life and urban welfare.

In any case, a Smart City is quintessentially enabled by the use of technologies (especially ICT) to improve competitiveness and ensure a more sustainable future by symbiotic linkage of networks of people, businesses, technologies, infrastructures, consumption, energy and spaces.
