|Vision||To serve as a focal point for collecting stakeholder requirements for IoT enabled Smart Cities, actively engage with existing standards groups, be IoT enabled smart city vision and think tank|
The focus will mainly be on Urban Societies and its Communities, but of course rural areas will be included. Urban Society is cross cutting by integrating and touching all domains, not only the horizontals but also the vertical domains are intertwined with Urban Society. Aligned with the vision of the European Commission, the main objective is to implement a human-centric approach in which societal challenges are the drivers pushing forward smart solution, an approach different than the conversant technical-centric vision. The main objective is to increase the drivers of success, to gain more solid footing, to overcome big blockades and last but not least to do the right thing for our ecosystem of people, society, ecology and economy.
We will do so by linking to related digital areas like public services, digital privacy, cybersecurity and healthy living focusing on the three main pillars of the European Commission: more green, more digital and more resilient. While in the midst of the pandemic, today and tomorrow, now more than ever, we need to think how to rebuilt and reboot our cities and communities
