Smart City Governance Processes in Small and Medium-Sized Cities - SPRINKLE

This pro­ject aims at com­pre­hens­ively ana­lyz­ing ex­ist­ing ap­proaches for the co­ordin­a­tion and reg­u­la­tion of Smart City devel­op­ment in small and me­di­um-s­ized cit­ies. In the con­text of case stud­ies, this study will com­bine the ana­lysis of rel­ev­ant leg­al-in­sti­tu­tional frame­works as well as of gov­ernance pro­cesses for se­lec­ted, en­ergy-re­lated fields of urban activ­ity. This pro­ject will de­liver res­ults as to the main drivers and bar­ri­eres for more smart­ness within ex­ist­ing gov­ernance struc­tures and pro­cesses and will lead to re­com­mend­a­tions for the im­ple­ment­a­tion of Smart City strategies in small and me­di­um-s­ized cit­ies.­­ults.html/id7834
