Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


Smart cities are complex ecosystems that use information and communication technologies to help their citizens and organizations deal with the challenges of urbanization, safety, resilience, and sustainability. Their creation is a long and laborious transformation that should not be considered mainly as a technical challenge but as a movement to create citizen-centered ecosystems that improve quality of life and stimulate economic activity. However, there is strong evidence that the workforce is in shortage or not skillful enough to handle these challenges. This paper presents the results of the SmartDevOps project, which attempts to systematically define the required smart cities competences and to outline the curricula that can be used for the development of the required knowledge coherently and systematically.
