Members of the IUR’s Smart Cities group had the opportunity to visit Rotterdam and participate in the Beyond Smart Cities Today Symposium organized by the impressive team at the Centre for BOLD Cities (in collaboration with the Erasmus Institute for Public Knowledge, the KnowledgeLab Urban Big Data, and the Erasmus Initiative Vital Cities and Citizens).

Our very own Carina Listerborn was one of the keynotes, alongside Rob Kitchin, Ayona Datta, Maria Kaika, Bianca Wylie, Alberto Vanolo and Liesbet van Zoonen. Carina presented a feminist perspective on smart cities.

Claudia Fonseca Alfaro and Lorena Melgaço presented Worlding smart cities: A view from Latin America within the session “Rethinking smart city scholarship.”
