Towards OPENCities

Towards OPENCities

As a result of the first international OPENCities Conference in February 2008 entitled Competitive Advantages of OPENCities - Internationalisation & Population Strategies a baseline study was released.

This publication presents a short summary of the thinking and reflection which went into scoping the options for the development of the OPENCities project. The initial definition of openness outlined in chapter 1 was the starting point for the project.
