One of the main activities carried out by the Committee in 2012 has been the elaboration of the “Smart Cities Study: International study on the situation of ICT, innovation and Knowledge in cities” in which 28 cities from al around the world have collaborated, and we want to thank their support in the elaboration of the study.

It is important to remark that the Study does not seek to make a ranking of cities. With this Study, from the Committee we want to provide a reference document for UCLG members that shows the degree of progress made by the members in regards to ICT, innovation and knowledge, and also provide best practices and experiences that will help to boost the knowledge-sharing between cities.

Now after all the work carried out during the last months, we finally have the document ready. The document is available for download in the committee website both in English and Spanish.

From the Committee we have made the official presentation of the Study to UCLG and the committee members during the annual meeting of the Committee held on December 5th in Dakar (Senegal) on the occasion of UCLG´s World Council Meeting.

From the Committee we hope that this document might be of your interest.
