Over half the world’s population live in cities – up to 60% in the westIncreased Citizen Expectations and the current economic crisis are creating new demands
Cities must deliver more for less ie better infrastructures and more efficient and responsive servicesClean energyHealth and AgeingSafer water suppliesWaste management
At the EU-level – an increasing focus on the City as the location where things can happen
Definitions of a Smart City vary but collectively tend to suggest the use of Ineternet of Things (IOT) and Web 2.0 technologies to connect city systems and deliver more effective and efficient public services:IBM: With recent advances in technology, we can infuse our existing infrastructures with new intelligence. By this, we mean digitising and connecting our systems, so they can sense, analyse and integrate data, and respond intelligently to the needs of their jurisdictions. In short, we can revitalise them so they can become smarter and more efficient. With the greater digitization and interconnection of a city’s core systems, the newly gained information can be used for intelligent and informed decision making.BUT: No roadmap. Where to start? How to Get there? How to connect the dots?
Understands that being smart is about much more than technologyAt the same time, understands and captures the complexity of the modern city in the context of technologyReflects the current thinking of the European CommissionWhilst providing a more holistic and integrated approach
Have received significant support through the years from the DG Info of the European Commission Used to close the gap between innovative R&D and market take up and make the innovation process more efficientOpen eco--‐systems engage and mo8vate stakeholders, s8mulatecollabora8on, createlead markets and enable behavior transforma8on. Approach is based on involving users in the design of public services much the same way the private sector engages consumers in new product design
Harness the power of the ‘Cloud’ to bring large industrial powers and SMEs closer together and achieve scalable networksUse the IBM Cloud as the basis for a European-based web-service delivery platformPilot ‘Smart City’ use of the platform across EuropeDevelop a Roadmap for pan-European implementation
