Realizing the promise of smart and connected cities

Abstract: Cities around the world are, more and more, aiming at becoming a smart city. But what is a smart city? What is behind the concept: a trendy term or real implementation? What does therefore becoming smart entail and what type of initiatives and technologies can make a city smart(er)? During this presentation, all these questions will be discussed, taking into account that a smart city is a multi-dimensional and multi-stakeholder phenomenon that requires decisions about goals (the vision), tools (the technology), and processes (among other, the engagement of citizens and other stakeholders).

Bio: Carlos E. Jimenez-Gomez is an independent consultant in Government Digital Transformation. He has 30 years of experience in the public sector. He has worked for governments and international organizations in Europe, Middle East, North of Africa, and America, having participated in the elaboration of important policy documents, like the Ibero-American e-Government Interoperability Framework, officially signed by 21 countries in 2010.
