Research output: Book/ReportOther report


This briefing will be of relevance to anyone interested in:
• how people make a difference in neighbourhoods
• what enables or hinders this kind of local action in a range of European cities
• what can be done in terms of capacity building, governance and resources
• the role of policy-makers, politicians, non-governmental organisations and funders in supporting smart urban intermediation

The briefing is part of the project Smart Urban Intermediaries, which focusses on how social and democratic innovation can provide a much needed corrective to the overly technological focus of the 'smart city' model.
