Understanding Smarter Cities: What Happens Next?

From the Innis Alumni and Friends website:

“This panel discussion will showcase U of T expertise and perspectives on smart cities. Questions to be raised at the event include: What are smart or smarter cities or what should they be? How can cities get there?

The intended audience includes local and regional stakeholders, government and industry partners that are developing smart cities strategies, researchers and community members. Panelists will highlight previous smart cities work and research including a recent workshop led by U of T on The Future of Smart Cities in India and also connect to the Canadian federal government’s upcoming $300M Smart Cities Challenge.
