Cities & infrastructure systems

Cities represent the highest concentration of infrastructure and building assets. Intricate webs of decisions are made about their construction, adaptation and use which has a direct bearing on how cities function defining the environments in which we live and work. CSIC is focussing on methods that apply smart, digital technologies to allow cities to reconfigure usage of the built environment as well as investigating emerging barriers to the implementation of smart technologies in existing regulations, standards and business practices at the city scale.
