What is Smart City for us?
Smart City is ”the next revolution” in city development and
integrates two perspectives, the human and the digital . Smart
City technologies improve quality of life and creates a more
sustainable city through integration of new organizational
structures, technologies and processes where information and
communication technologies become a natural part of the built
environment and sevices that the city provide. Smart City is
created through a participatory approach, based on cooperation
and sharing of information.
TO MAKE THE MUNICIPALITY A MORE
INFORMED AND THRILLED CONSUMER OF
SMART CITY SOLUTIONS
TO IMPROVE DIALOGUE BETWEEN BUSINESS
AND MUNICIPALITY AND THEREBY CREATE
POSSIBILITY FOR BUSINESS TO DEVELOP
3 INNOVATION PLATFORMS
3 TECHNOLOGY AREAS
SMART STREET LIGHTING
SMART WATER MANAGEMENT
The technologies have….
• …different market place
• …different budget lines, strategic planning and
implementing units in the local goverment
• ….different civil society engagement/knowledge
• ….different cultural values
• ….different public-private collaborations
….but if we are really SMART, we think
of integrated solutions
Street lights is the most common infrastrucutre in the city
– an optimal place for sensors and other devices to;
- monitor floodwaters, local weather forecasts, soil
saturation, percipitaiton and water leaks
- or improve safety, save energy and improve knowledge
of movement of bikers in the city.
THE ROAD AHEAD
CLEAR VALUE FOR PEOPLE
• Municipalities have little resources in understanding ICT,
companies have little possibilities and/or incentives to understand
• Make sure technologies adopt to culture (do not expect vice versa)
• We need more integrated data, not more data
• We need to break the silo-structures between local government units
step one for a smarter city is srategic/political
• Look at processes, not just the technologies. Also the citizens dialogue is a part
of the business model.
• Technologies are new and in constant development. We need better
understanding of possibilities to have dialogue with industry before/during and
after procurement. We need lighter and more flexible procurements.
When you write
1) Agree on a definition of
2) Technology and business is
vital, but make sure your have
acces to experts in governance
structures, innovative public
procurement and citizens dialogue.
3) Make sure you work in a field where there is strategic/political
will, allow resources and activities to keep up that will.
4) Make sure your local government can
contribute resources from different
(i.e. IT, strategic, technical).
Be firm on this –
they will thank you in the end
5) Create expert groups that find new crossings/mixing of existing
technologies implemented in the city. Did you know that the light
in the streetlight could also transfer data?
