COURSE OVERVIEW

The term ‘smart city’ is widely used, but what is a smart city? Definitions vary, but whatever the context, urban ecosystems are complex, and goals such as digital or sustainable transformation can be hard to achieve.

Cities and other municipalities face the continuous challenge of balancing numerous and diverse interests while trying to transform, improve quality of life for their citizens and become attractive locations for businesses.

Strategic planning can help to understand the needs of stakeholders and to align different perspectives, as well as to find appropriate innovations in order to achieve the vision and goals.

This course offers an overview of how a smart city vision and strategy can be defined. It introduces key concepts and practice examples of a smart city, as well as insight about tools and techniques for strategic planning and measuring the success of the strategy implementation, including how new technologies can help to improve strategic planning and deliver on objectives.

Participants will learn methods that favour a fast start and agile implementation in order to achieve quick results, and benefit from exchanging experiences and lessons with participants from other cities and countries.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

  • Mayors, city authorities and councillors
  • Ministers and policy makers
  • Public and private sector professionals involved in urban planning and development, such as innovation managers, strategists, sustainability managers
