Prof. Lauriault in collaboration with Open North will present findings thus far from the Open Smart Cities in Canada project. This Project’s research consists of a preliminary environmental-scan (E-scan) and gap analysis of smart city definitions, actors, standards and pathways; a Canadian smart cities assessment report at the project’s four partnering Cities; and a report on international policy mobilities and best practices surrounding open and geospatial data in a smart city context. The presentation will be delivered in a bilingual format (English/French). Slides from the presentation will be made available in both English and French.
This research is led by Open North and funded by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) GeoConnections. The core team of experts leading the research for this project include Prof. Tracey Lauriault at Carleton University, M. David Fewer at the Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic (CIPPIC), and Prof. Mark S. Fox at the University of Toronto. This project also relies on input from smart city representatives and informants at the Cities of Edmonton, Guelph, Montreal, and Ottawa.
