WHAT: Smart cities can be seen as platforms where major building blocks such as energy&transport networks, ICT networks and services, active citizenship, existing infrastructure/institutions, city planning and law enforcement might be glued together into a system that is able to respond dynamically to a new set of bottom-up user-driven information.
Indeed the objective of a smart city is to foster the best conditions to develop new business and welfare models, to attain sound environmental results, to guarantee a better governance and ultimately to seamlessly increase the quality of life citizens-consumers. The course analyses the factors driving the development of smart city projects, with the aim of providing participants with the knowledge and skills that are needed to understand their main technological, economic and regulatory challenges.
WHO: The course is mainly addressed to policy makers, regulators, city planners, utility network specialists, industry experts, software architects, startuppers, researchers, local decision makers and community managers
