„URBASOFIA – Bridging Smart Cities and Integrated Planning”
Speaker: Sabina DIMITRIU, Urban and Regional Planner

Urbasofia is a laboratory for urban development, policy deign and territorial cohesion focused on developing more integrated, participatory and smart-oriented solutions to pressing urban problems. Capacitating cities and regions and creating the governance framework for smart city investments, which are oftentimes costly, is essential for ensuring that effort is directed to the real needs in the territory.

Leveraging on European structural funding for urban innovation, the challenge we took up in working with urban authorities was to help them meet actual urban problems with the right tools and fitting flagship projects and piloting actions. Concomitantly, working within Smart Cities innovation actions provided us with an understanding on how relations between Smart City solution providers and cities can be further strengthened and articulated through innovative planning.

The lessons learned and ongoing smart cities initiatives we present aim at bridging the pan-European innovation landscape with the actual end-users and beneficiaries using participatory strategic planning processes.
