Modern urban areas are smart environments equipped with interconnected sensors and devices that allow for the efficient and the effective use of the available resources. City officials can exploit smart city technologies to observe the behavior of the communities and monitor infrastructures, with the objective of increasing the quality and reducing the cost of the services provided to citizens.
The “Smart City Looks Like…” summer school will provide a comprehensive view of the technologies, concerns and assets relevant to the design of smart cities. Students will explore interdisciplinary approaches while working in interdisciplinary and intercultural groups of students and lecturers in order to analyze what smart city looks like: cities aiming to become more energy efficient, clean and green, while addressing Citizen engagement, governance and critical needs.
