Smart City Governance – Exploitation Workshop by JPI Urban Europe

The Department for E-Governance and Administration was represented by Malgorzata Goraczek, the coordinator of the “SmartGov” project on 2nd March 2017 in Brussels. The Exploitations Workshop with focus on Smart City Governance was organised by the funding agency JPI Urban Europe.

Following themes were discussed during the workshop:

“Theme 1: How to handle disruptive innovation and niche markets? Moderated by Amy Olsson – JPI Urban Europe

Which ‘conventional business models’ are supporting urban governance capacities? Do successful new business models counter existing business models’ in having negative externalities?

Theme 2: How to articulate city challenges and needs? Moderated by Ania Rok – ICLEI

The main question was how city related business models will look like: Is there a need for new business models for integrated, multi-sectoral solutions, rather than “simple” ICT applications? Cities and public administrations provide much of the demand. Also cities enable innovation with regulations and procurement.

Theme 3: Who is in and out of the ecosystem? Moderated by Jonas Bylund – JPI Urban Europe

New actors might be needed for new business models: Who are those actors? How to create an ecosystem? Do we need more intermediary kinds of actors? For instance, the changing role of citizens into prosumers challenges traditional, corporate business models. There is also an identified need for intermediaries that share features of both public and private actors.

Theme 4: What are the keys to unlocking the potentials? Moderated by Tomas Soukup – GISAT

A systemic approach for screening/evaluating successful business models in Europe is needed. A lot of knowledge is lost in translation between settings. Is this an opportunity for a brokering-translation kind of business model?”1
