Common data and technological partnership - the foundation for the development of smart cities - Poznań Case Study

AbstractOver the recent years communities have been working towards changing the paradigm of city development into the so-called smart approaches. While various revolutionary solutions have been deployed to make the cities smarter, we believe that a more evolutionary path makes it easier for the cities to change into smart ecosystems. Such an evolutionary path is possible with the right foundation. In this paper we discuss such a foundation that has been making the city of Poznań, Poland, smarter over the last 20 years, and opens opportunities for employing the Citizen Science model of smart city development. This foundation relates to the combination of the creation of a common data space, and the technological partnership with a research and development center and research cyberinfrastructure operator such as the Poznań Supercomputing and Networking Center.
