Smart Cities through Projects: Achieving Quality of Life?

At the heart of future cities, one must find a reflection of the diverse qualities, challenges and aspirations of its citizens. The continuous improvement of quality of life can come through innovative projects and related efforts that support both human interests and digital transformation. What form might this support take?

Addressing these complexities is not easy, but it is essential, and will be an ongoing effort of research, industry and government stakeholders in close collaboration with its citizens. A key challenge is to find ways how to combine the different players within complex project ecosystems. We must find ways to share our thoughts, questions and proposals in order to create a sustainable future that serves us all.

One way is to engage the global community. At IEEE E-TEMS 2021– organised by the European Partnership for Project and Innovation Management – participants will share their understanding of quality of life within cities, showcase their digital transformation projects and explore related themes.

The programme will be a balance between topics emergent from submissions and those we specifically seek. For those interested in regional perspectives, it’s important to note that we are actively seeking contributions from organizations in and around Dortmund, Bilbao, Trondheim, Kaunas, Leuven, Kyiv and other Smart Cities.
