Successfully managing this prodigious growth will require further integration of ICT in city infrastructure. Fully integrating these technologies in all aspects of city life will help create ‘smart cities’, and the advantages of doing this are numerous; it will improve quality of life, increase sustainability and efficiency, promote economic growth, foster job growth, encourage public participation, and help meet the myriad challenges that cities will continue to face in coming years.

There is exciting work going on all over Scotland to roll out smart city technology; for example, the Smart Cities Strategic Initiative recently received £10 million to support a nationwide programme of rolling out smart city technology. Nevertheless, there is still much work to be done. Holyrood’s event on Smart Cities will provide a forum for delegates to gain comprehensive insights into the opportunities and challenges conferred by further integration of ICT technology in Scottish cities. The overall aim is for city leaders, policymakers, and other relevant stakeholders to better understand their role in ensuring our rapidly growing cities remain attractive places in which to live and work.
