STRATEGY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF 'SMART' CITIES WITH A LOOK AT THE REPUBLIC OF SERBIA
AbstractCities are the main pillars of human and economic activities and have the capacity to create positive synergies that create opportunities for development for their residents. However, they also generate a large range of problems that are increasingly complex and more difficult to solve as the city grows. The "smart" city is a newer concept introduced into urban theory, and is increasingly the subject of analysis in scientific and professional circles. For the city to be "smart", it needs a cultural transformation, and for the vision to become a reality, it is necessary to have a unique strategy that will unite all individual efforts and ensure the sustainability of the whole concept, otherwise individual smart projects will only be lonely sparks.
