Having in mind that Barcelona won recently the iCapital prize (http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_IP-14-239_en.htm) for intoducing new technologies that contribute to involve people with the city, Laia will talk about the technological solutions needed for constructing a smart city, and that the deploy of this solutions must be accompanied by the introduction of new processes of governance in the management of the city.
There’s a need to re-establishing an area of conversation between the administration and the citizens, in a relationship on equal terms, in which each of them can contribute to creating this new model of city having in mind the common good & the public interest.
