CSTI Policy Seminar regarding Smart Cities - This seminar aims to address these various opportunities and challenges associated with smart cities and relevant policy implications. Two international scholars are invited to share their recent studies on innovation systems of smart cities in China, Japan, Korea, and the United States.


Smart cities can significantly improve our quality of life and create economic opportunities, by collecting and using a vast amount of data to manage diverse assets and resources efficiently. The development of smart cities thus requires a new mode of open, dynamic innovation involving close coordination and collaboration among multiple stakeholders with different backgrounds and expertise. The convergence of new, disruptive technologies not only results in fundamental transformation of our current innovation systems, but also increases concerns regarding privacy, cyber security, and public safety.
