- Success requires that the municipality has capabilities that is different and far more complex than usual city administration.
- Therefore, we have developed a model (for municipalities and regions) that concretizes what is important to success.
- The processes that must be performed well by competent people supported by methods and tools.
- If the municipalities and regions perform these processes well, they are capable to effectively implement a Smart City, in strong collaboration and partnerships with stakeholders like e.g., utilities, universities, NGO’s and of cause the citizens.
An assessment using the urbanSPICE model will show the strengths and weaknesses of the municipality today in relation to Smart City initiatives – e.g., to implement a given sets of goal in a climate plan.
The purpose of the urbanSPICE maturity model is to strengthen municipalities and regions capabilities to succeed in the very complex world of smart cities.
