Our White Paper Smart City Demonstrators – A Global Review of Challenges and Lessons Learned outlines best practices and lessons learned captured from existing demonstrator projects to help guide and inform the next generation of city-based projects.

And lastly, a comprehensive Playbook has been produced for asset owners, service providers, businesses, entrepreneurs and local authorities who wish to engage in deploying integrated city systems at scale.
