Indeed the objective of a smart city is to foster the best conditions to develop new business and welfare models, to attain sound environmental results, to guarantee a better governance and ultimately to seamlessly increase the quality of life citizens-consumers. The course analyses the factors driving the development of smart city projects, with the aim of providing participants with the knowledge and skills that are needed to understand their main technological, economic and regulatory challenges.
