Smart City Projects implement a systemic approach in decision-making, with collection of data and implementation of logical decision-making processes; nevertheless, there is lack of research in decision-making processes. The first approach towards SC was to connect infrastructure, which leads to the second objective that is to integrate humans and achieve collective intelligence through a connected ecosystem. The integration and collaboration from different stakeholders through planning processes has created the necessity from urban planning to evolve with technology to adopt new innovative and at the same time transdisciplinary collaborative methodologies. This area of opportunity is also present within the analysis of the case study, conducted within this research, where the development of Smartes M-Quartier integrates stakeholders nevertheless there is a challenge of common agreement, due to lack of a common language.

The thesis was supervised by Dr. Nadine Kuhla von Bergmann.
