Smart city applications are at the forefront of these developments. Smart cities provide the state of the art approaches for urbanisation, having .. Read more evolved from the developments carried out under the umbrella of knowledge-based economy, and subsequently under the notion of digital economy and intelligent economy. Smart cities exploit physical and digital infrastructure, as well as the intellectual and social capital, for urban and social development. The notion of smart cities can be extended to smart societies; i.e. digitally-enabled, knowledge-based societies, aware of and working towards social, environmental and economic sustainability. Since knowledge, and human and social capital are at the heart of smart city and smart society developments, the role of education should extend beyond the mainstream “education for employment” scope. It should extend to the notion of social and collaborative governance where the society collaborates to train each other in maintaining its knowledge, moral fibre, operations, good practice, resilience, competitiveness, and for bringing innovation, and becoming a knowledge-based economy.
