Event description

Description

During the Conference Design & The City (a four-day event to explore citizen-centered design approaches to the smart city) the Smart City Entrepreneurial Lab organises a seminar in which they give you insights in the best practices and lessons learned across a broad range of smart city projects in the Amsterdam metropolitan area in three key themes in urban sustainability: energy, mobility, and circular economy.

Description:
There are a lot of (pilot) smart city projects done, some are quite successful, others less; Some projects have been developed, scaled and/or replicated elsewhere, others are not. Getting smart city solutions off the ground is not just about developing and applying technology: it asks for new networking and management competencies. How to set up and manage projects in which different stakeholders collaborate to get results?

In their current research, the Smart City Entrepreneurial Lab examines what lessons can be learned from the experiences so far. The study focuses on the business model, the committed network and the way in which this has been realized. In this way, new smart city projects can benefit from the knowledge gained in previous projects.
