What is the learning content?

The cool thing about Smart City Monitor is that its implementation fosters digital transformation of common city into the Smart City. The system core is a Smart City model as a virtual copy of your real city which runs on the Smart City Engine having connections to all data sources for real time data about ongoing processes. The model results provide human friendly information for all citizens, tourists, visitors and businesses online improving Quality of Life, Economic growth as well as the City budget. Its special applications for the city administration and utility service providers foster sustainable, effective qulity of management.

While the initial implementation of the Smart City urban model based on ISO 37120 is simple, especially in middle size cities and towns, it requires the innovative vision, knowledge of local processes. The model can further acсomodate different applications introduced gradually as step-by-step upgrades revealing novel information services and city visions.

The workshop provides relevant knowledge enabling new professional skills and qualifications.

Awareness workshops

The workshops provide overview of the Smart City concept, its current status, implementations and practical solution by the Smart City Monitor. Its duration is typically limited to 3-4 hours.

Training workshops
