Scientific papers

In terms of fundamental research, the Smart City Institute has been publishing, since 2015, scientific articles in high-quality peer-reviewed journals (Cities, Journal of Cleaner Production, Technological Forecasting and Social Change or Sustainability Accounting, Management and Policy Journal) and thus contributes to the advancement of academic research in the field of smart cities.

A collection of Practical Guides

This collection, which consists of the publication of a new thematic volume every year since 2017, aims to guide cities and municipalities in the design and composition of their Smart City approach and/or projects. Each volume offers a clear structure composed of key steps and checklists, underpinned by a complete theoretical basis.

Annual barometers

For a better understanding of the Smart City/Smart Territories dynamics in Belgium and Wallonia and its evolution, the annual barometers published by the SCI since 2017 reveal how Belgian and Walloon municipalities perceive the Smart City concept; their state of progress in this area, but also how they are implementing (or not) a Smart City approach on their territory.

Methodological notes

As a complement to the collection of practical guides, these notes are designed to provide a very practical framework (model / canvas) to accompany Smart City project leaders in their approach.
