Smart Cities indices across the globe lack recognising the role of culture in Smart Cities. Culture is commonly subsumed in the indicator categories of education or citizens wellbeing, hence being rather soft contributors. This session will investigate various impact perspectives – social, economic, innovation oriented – and their measurability based on experiences from Rome, the culture centric and tourist flooded eternal city, Glasgow, the first Cultural City of Europe in 1990, Aarhus, Europe’s Cultural Capital 2017, and our very own Hamburg as a living lab and urban testbed.
