Smart cities and communities <BR> Standardization to meet citizen and consumer requirements

Awareness Open Meeting #1

On-line Presentation and Discussion with the STF stakeholders
14:00 to 16:00 CEST, 16 May 2019

The initiative
ETSI has recently started a new project (the Specialist Task Force STF 561) within its Human Factors Technical Committee, whose main goal is to provide a Technical Report with recommendations giving an overview of existing and needed standardization relating to the requirements of inhabitants of or visitors to smart cities or communities.

The perception is that smart city standards efforts do not sufficiently factor in citizen needs including usability, accessibility, or data security. This is clearly counterproductive when trying to create efficient standards in the smart city context.

The first step for producing the Technical Report has been to embark on a consultation exercise with an active input from all interested stakeholders including standards organizations, policy-makers and the cities themselves.
Purpose of the Open Meeting
The current meeting was the first of two web-based open meetings to be organised by the team preparing the Technical Report. It was dedicated to creating and improving stakeholder awareness regarding the progress of the work and to collect early feedback from the audience that can help the ETSI team in better focusing its work.

A second open meeting will take place in September 2019 to discuss the conclusions of the consultation and the refined content of the Technical Report.
