Forget science fiction. We need to think differently about smart cities. #
From 2018–2019 I led an eight country research project looking at how universities can shape ‘smart cities’, funded by the British Council. The final report, Smart places – how universities are shaping a new wave of smart cities, was launched in Berlin at the Going Global 2019 conference.
A summary article in The Conversation has been read over 34,000 times. The research has been featured in the media from The i newspaper and Fast Company magazine to City Metric and Yahoo News, and I was interviewed about the findings on Singapore radio.
I’ve also written extensively about smart cities on this site – see below – including reflections on how some of my thinking has evolved since the report.
