Smart Cities – Delivering Public Value through Responsible Urban Digital Innovation
Dr Schooling will discuss the opportunities and challenges presented by city-scale digitalisation, with a focus on three core aspects: governance, ethics and technology. She will describe the findings of the Digital Cities for Change programme, funded by the Ove Arup Foundation, which evaluates both the existing structures and systems of city and infrastructure management, and investigates how digital tools can help better decision-making within these areas. This research has led to the creation of a Digital Innovation Process and Competency Framework for urban digitalisation projects, which puts public value at the heart of these initiatives.
