Smart Cities Need Smart Citizens

The final public report of the SMARTiP project was launched in March 2014 at the Future Internet Assembly in Athens, where over 500 delegates were able to find out about a wide range of “smart city” initiatives. SMARTiP was one of a number of “Connected Smart City” projects that was profiled at the event, with a special seminar on smart cities taking place on the Monday directly before the conference.

The rise of the smart city

See on Scoop.it - Almere Smart City

We examine the top 20 cities that look the likeliest to drive change in the future, in The New Economy’s Smart Cities 2014


For the first time in history the majority of the human population are city dwellers, according to the World Health Organisation. As few as two in every 10 people lived in urban areas 100 years ago: by 1990, that figure had risen to 40 percent and by 2010 exceeded 50 percent. Those figures are a testament to the growing importance of cities in modern economies.

The number of urban residents is forecast to grow by approximately 60 million every year and the overall number of city dwellers is expected to almost double between 2009 and 2050 – from 3.4 billion to 6.4 billion. This state of affairs is leading to increasingly sophisticated technological, societal and economic gains in some of the world’s most advanced cities.

Not to be confused with the all-too-familiar patchwork of office blocks and assorted greys, these ‘smart’ cities are instead vibrant hubs for research and progress. The concept might sound foreign to the many who’ve come to associate cities with pollution and over population, but it is one that is steadily gathering momentum.

Do not be a Gl***hole, use Face-Block.me!

See on Scoop.it - Almere Smart City

If you are a Google Glass user, you might have been greeted with concerned looks or raised eyebrows at public places. There has been a lot of chatter in the “interweb” regarding the loss of privacy that results from people taking your pictures with Glass without notice. Google Glass has simplified photography but as what happens with revolutionary technology people are worried about the potential misuse.


Almere's insight:

Ik vraag al langer af hoeveel Google Glasses straks, als ‘iedereen’ er mee rondloopt, van de neus geslagen worden? Heel hard roepen dat je aanvallers dan maar een app hadden moeten installeren is de omgekeerde wereld,.. En waarschijnlijk te laat.

Creating successful Smart Cities in 2014 will be an economic, financial and political challenge, not an engineering accomplishment

See on Scoop.it - Almere Smart City

Why insurers, pension funds and politics will be more important to Smart Cities in 2014 than “Living Labs” or technology.


I hope that 2014 will be the year in which we see widespread and large-scale investments in future city technology infrastructures that enable sustainable, equitably distributed economic and social growth. The truth is that we are still in the very early stages of that process.

In 2012 I spoke with a Director at a financial consultancy who’d performed a survey of European Smart City initiatives. She confirmed something that I suspected at the time: that the great majority of Smart City initiatives up to that point in the mature markets of Europe and North America had been financed by research funding, rather than on a commercial basis.

European Commission Calls for More Openness on “Smart Cities”

See on Scoop.it - Almere Smart City

The EU’s ruling body wants greater transparency around data-driven, tech-enabled city building.

In a new press release, the European Union’s governing body asks those working on data-driven, technology-enabled city building to do more to publish on the progress of that work. It’s part of an effort to bake openness about planning into the Commission’s work on “smart cities” from the start:

The challenge is being issued to city administrations, small and large companies and other organisations to go public with their ICT [information and communications technology], energy and mobility plans, so that all parties can learn from each other and grow the smart city market. Through collaboration as well as traditional competition, the Europe will get smarter, more competitive and more sustainable.

The European Commission certainly isn’t skeptical of the “smart city” concept. Under its auspices is the relatively new European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities. That effort is just getting off the ground, and this notice comes as part of the process for soliciting proposals for participation in that partnership. Indeed, European Commission vice president Neelie Kroes also says of “smart cities” in the press release, “Nothing else makes sense. And nothing else is such a worldwide economic opportunity.”
