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

Research field: Smart Cities, Sustainable Urban Development and Urban Transformations

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.
