The fundamental objective of a Smart City is to incorporate all these areas in order to improve the lives of citizens. So the SMART CITIES SUMMIT PORTUGAL was a site of convergence and marketplace physical creation opportunities. These opportunities related to research and education, and were meant to reflect on the future of the organization of our cities.
