Smart City means collaboration for the well-being of citizens
The central idea in initiating a Smart City is the effective collaboration for the benefit of the citizens of several essential industries: Utilities, Energy, Transport, Construction, Ecology, Education, Health, Culture, Sports, etc. Everything is done with the full support of IT & C, which is no longer a market vertical today, but a real horizontal platform that integrates all the others. This is the essence of the Smart City project, which must be imagined by a complex consortium of professionals from local and state administration, academia, business, civil society, non-governmental organizations and the media. Virtually the entire community of an urban area participates in the generation of a Smart City through the innovative contributions of each of the parties involved. The success of Smart City is ensured and conditioned only by the collaboration between the members of the Consortium.
