The role of cities has become increasingly significant in recent decades. The majority of the world’s population lives in those urban areas where most of the wealth is produced, energy and information are consumed and waste and pollution are generated. These urban agglomerations are witnessing major technological and social transformations, resulting in new lifestyles and inequalities at the same time.

Smart cities are currently considered one of the most powerful tools to be used to deal with contemporary challenges at local level, such as pollution, energy efficiency, transportation, social inclusion and welfare, and to attract investments. In this framework, cities become potential platforms where major building blocks such as infrastructure, urban planning, rules enforcement and active citizenship might be glued together into a system that is able to respond dynamically to a new set of citizens‘ needs.

Overall, the main goal is to offer better services and to increase quality of life while guaranteeing infrastructure security and personal safety of citizens-consumers. Furthermore, dealing with the multiple challenges associated with the realization of smart city projects requires a holistic consideration of different policy areas (ICT, transport, energy and water) with the inclusion of all stakeholders, such as governmental and non-governmental actors, private sector players and citizens.
