International Smart Cities Network
The International Smart Cities Network (ISCN) promotes the integration of digital solutions into citizen-centred urban development processes and facilitates the exchange of good practices and experiences between urban practitioners worldwide.
The ISCN is in its start-up phase and currently consists of the core member countries Brazil, Mexico, Peru, India and Germany as well as the associated country of the ISCN Chile. These are each involved in the network activities at national and municipal level. Through the ISCN, the partner countries have the opportunity to continuously exchange their expertise and experience in the field of Smart Cities. The continuous “learning from each other” should make it possible to jointly shape the digital transformation of cities in terms of sustainable and integrated urban development. The first network meeting took place within the framework of the Federal Congress on National Urban Development Policy in Stuttgart in September 2019.
Further information on the activities of the International Smart Cities Network can be found on our “News” page.
The existing knowledge of the members in the field of Smart Cities is collected and made available online in an internal forum. This makes the network a valuable knowledge resource for all future activities and projects in the partner countries.
Members benefit from continuous contact with partner countries and peer-to-peer consultations in familiar group constellations. They can support each other in strategic planning, contribute different experiences to the processes and obtain feedback.
Regular meetings promote bilateral and multilateral international exchange, mutual learning and knowledge transfer in the field of Smart Cities. The topics and contents of the meetings are developed jointly by the members.
