We just launched, and here's what to expect over the coming months!

Welcome! Today, I am proud to announce that we are launching Next Generation City.

Next Generation City is a platform that inspires and connects people. It is a place where knowledge on Smart City Strategy is shared and it brings together theory and practice in the form of three pillars:

  • A Knowledge Base which contains objective and empirical research on Smart Cities and Smart City Strategy

  • Articles and Blog posts highlighting current projects and news updates, City Highlights which zoom in on the Smart City strategy of a specific city and Future of articles which focus on the future of specific areas such as Health, Mobility, e-Government, Retail, Citizens, Education and so on.

  • A Discussion Board – which provides room for discussion on the topics above, including the ethical, social and economic aspects related to Smart Cities and Smart Cities strategies.

As of today, we are posting Articles and blog posts here regularly. Along with that, we have opened up the Discussion Board and encourage everyone to jump in and get involved.

Over the next weeks and months, we will be regularly updating the website, both in the form of new content as well as with new features (including the Knowledge Base). In the Discussion Board we’ll post more information on the feature updates and we would love to hear your feedback!

Please do let us know if you suggestions to make this platform even better!  

Thank you for your visit and we hope you enjoy
