2017 Global Smart City Summit in Shanghai

Our team members Ali Cheshmehzangi and Frans Sengers recently presented at the main forum of the 2017 Global Smart City Summit in Shanghai, 28-30 June 2017. They spoke about our project, and presented a comparative study of the smart city experimentation of Amsterdam, Hamburg and Ningbo from an institutional perspective under the title “Comparing smart cities in Europe and China: visions, governance and experiments”.

The summit was held by the Chinese Society for Urban Studies and the Tongji University, with the theme of “Smart Transition: Green, eco sustainable”. It was supported by the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development (MoHURD), the Standardization Administration of China (SAC), the China Association for Science and Technology (CAST) and International Organization for Standardization ISO/TC268/SC1/IEC, as well as the Global System for Mobile Communications assembly (GSMA). More than 1,500 attendees (including governmental officials, experts, practitioners, scholars, enterprises) participated.

Links to news items about the summit (in Chinese) appear underneath the photo below – but do of course get in touch with us if you’d like to find out more about the research presented by our colleagues.
