About the Masterclasses

The classes are highly interactive and each participant’s smart city project (portfolio) will play a central role in group work. Participants provide information on their project before the masterclass starts to allow an engaging dialogue between the wide range of experts taking part. 

Each participant will receive preparatory information in advance of the masterclass so that you can get to know their fellow participants and familiarise themselves with the Smart City Guidance Package and other materials


Learning objectives

By the end of the masterclass, you will be able to answer the following questions among others:

  • WHAT is integrated planning and management of smart city projects and how does it help to prepare plans in a better way?
  • HOW to develop a smart city strategy and who to involve?
  • WHAT role can cities play to support the adoption of smart city solutions?
  • WHAT are suitable models for financing and funding of projects?
