Transforming the City

 

Hello,

 

Here, I will be posting and commenting articles – mainly in English and in French – that I find interesting and useful in illustrating way cities are transforming themselves to become “smart”.

More specifically, I’ll be looking for stories that speak to the way cities working internally as municipalities, with regional & national government, with service operators, with suppliers of software (Apps) and hardware (IoT) solutions … to overcome obstacles, to achieve efficiency and to deliver real value to their inhabitants and visitors.

 

If you want to send me an article that you have come across that does this, please do so and I will publish it here. My email address is: jonathan.woods@eukalypton.com
