The purpose of this report is to share lessons learned and to provide policy recommendations based on feedback from projects as well as from other documentation on the policies needed to support Smart Cities. As such, it is a key deliverable in the Smart Cities Information Systems (SCIS) project, which aims to support and stimulate the replication of successful innovative technologies tested through EU-funded Smart Cities and Communities demonstration projects. The core target groups of this report are policy makers at the local, national and EU levels. It complements two other reports with information on all projects analysed ‘The making of a smart city: best practices’, and one on potential tools to replicate innovations for city planners and policy developers ‘The making of a smart city: technology replication’.
