Policy Recommendations Supporting Smart City Strategies: Towards a New Methodological Tool
One of the biggest challenges for cities today is positioning themselves in relation to the debate surrounding the “Smart City” concept. Based on a thorough value network analysis of 37 international Smart City services in a doctoral study, a number of policy recommendations are formulated. These recommendations lead to a new methodology that local governments can use to build a vision on their Smart City principles and priorities.
