We encourage mayors to join any of our Programs if they want to move forward on the journey to make their city, a smart city.
The Programs are designed to capture the key aspects of a city’s transformation journey to become a smarter city. Your city will become a Smart city when it is characterized by a high level of community and citizen engagement, and also by its attractiveness for businesses, investments, talent, skills and by its efficient and sustainable city operations.
Through our Programs, we will be able to quickly assess your city strengths and weaknesses in selected key dimension areas related to city smartness.
