Smart City & Urban Metabolism

A Smart City implies a planning and urban policy capable of understanding the city in its complexity, and of recognizing its values and potential. Urban systems are complex and interactive and should be investigated in an integrated view in order to improve its quality.

Smart City & Sustainable Mobility

Promoting sustainability and innovation in the management of urban and suburban travel means adopting advanced solutions for mobility management. The actions in the field of sustainable mobility must reconcile the right to mobility with the need to reduce air and noise pollution and ensure a better quality of life.

Smart City & Green Economy

Efficient production processes and careful environmental management systems help replacing the past economy, characterized by maximum exploitation of natural resources and poor attention to the impact of human activities on the environment and society. The Green Economy promotes eco-building, energy efficiency, use of renewable energy, waste and water management.

Smart City & Social Innovation

A Smart City cannot just be a technological challenge, but primarily, it must be a social and environmental challenge: a new urban model able to guarantee a high quality of life by optimizing resources and spaces towards sustainability and social relations.

SMARTPLANNING LAB

A Smart City is based on the integration of technological, cultural, economic and social components of urban development within a vision leading to more intelligent, creative, sustainable and responsible cities. In order to achieve this integration, a Smart City must adopt an integrated model of planning and management of its urban life cycles able to introduce new technology, create innovation and activate efficient governance processes. The SmartPlanning Lab fits into this framework as a System Integrator.
