"Uber, the world’s largest taxi company, owns no vehicles. Facebook, the world’s most popular media owner, creates no content. Alibaba, the most valuable retailer, has no inventory. And Airbnb, the world’s largest accommodation provider, owns no real estate. Something interesting is happening."
Tom Goodwin

Smart city has become a buzzword in urban development strategy and is considered to be one of the most powerful tools to deal with contemporary challenges (climate changes, energy efficiency, social inclusion and welfare) and to attract investment. Its objective is to offer best conditions to develop new welfare and business models, to guarantee better governance and to increase citizens’ quality of life, their digital health, security and personal safety. Cities, in this vision, become platforms where major building blocks such as energy & transport networks, ICT networks and tools, active citizenship, existing infrastructure/institutions, city planning and law enforcement have to be glued together into a dynamic system able to respond to diverse flows of information. The round table will be an occasion to explore, decipher and better understand the complexity of smart city with a particular attention to the regulatory aspects of its implementation.
