Urenio Watch Watch: Intelligent / Smart Cities Strategies

New posts’ series announcement

sc strategyURENIO, a global expert in smart cities and their strategies, is going to publish a series of articles presenting real cases of smart city strategies. We will also mention how they are coming along, as well as our top suggested informational sources for each one of them.


Smart cities and their strategies have been in the epicenter of interest for almost a decade now. Especially after 2010, related articles, programs and initiatives have been proliferating. However, strategic planning for the development of smart cities still remains abstract for the most part. A lot is being written but only a small fraction analyzes the essence of the strategies that have been used by cities for becoming ‘˜smart’ .

Therefore, beginning next week we will publish two posts weekly (every Monday and Thursday) with this topic. Each post will be devoted to one smart city and its strategy. You will be able to find all the strategies in the section “Intelligent / Smart Cities Strategies’, also available on the right sidebar.
