Project relevance and context
In recent years, there have been significant societal changes in the transition to the so-called "Society 4.0". It is about increasing the impact of digitization, reducing energy consumption, improving the environment and the involvement of modern technologies and artificial intelligence in the development of society as a comprehensive social system.
The name “SmartCity/Region/Society” (hereinafter referred to as “SMART”) is generally used for this social change based on GreenDeal/SDG. The problem is that each state, region, city conceives the principle of SMART differently and thus there is a significantly different concept of strategic documents, which should facilitate the transition of the classic solution of the society to "SMART" society.
In the Czech Republic, we participated in the creation of the national “SMART Concept”. It is a set of instructions, procedures and methodologies on how to prepare SMART strategic documents for cities/regions, how they should be structured in terms of content and what content they should have. It is actually a standard against which the existing "SMART" strategic documents for the development of cities and regions can be "compared". In this way, it is possible to find out how the given strategy is really in line with the "SMART concept“, or what should be added.
As part of the implementation of this project, we want to offer to cities/regions of V4 countries the use of the "SMART Concept", web-portal, our experience, methodologies and procedures for verifying the compliance of "SMART Strategic Documents" with the "SMART Concept".
