The book of Agro-Innovation in Smart Cities uses current projections to build an argument around the urgent need for a new urban agenda. One that promotes human settlements that are environmentally sustainable, resilient, socially inclusive, safe and violence-free and economically productive. It aims to present case studies that outline what should be taken into account when considering the socio-technical integration within the cities of tomorrow.Questions explored in this research:
- What are smart cities?
- What do you want the smart city to be?
- Engineers, policymakers, and digital technology providers, on the one hand, can see valuable opportunities, but do all citizens want their city to be smart?
- Do people want their cities to be smart?
- Why is a product only worthy if it is perfect?
- Doesn’t a vibrant product or a dynamic service have much more value?
- But is the solution to produce every calorie we consume in the city limits?
- What is the place of technology in the food system? And how can we best apply it?
