    Author : Cesar Ivan Amador Vazquez; Paulina Ruiz Maya; Regina Pereda Sparrowe; [2022]
    Keywords : smart city; Sweden; Umeå; social innovation; sustainable development;

    Abstract : While several authors have focused on the different components of smart city projects and practicalities for their development in large urban areas, despite the absence of a consensual definition of what a smart city is, limited attention has been given to the transformation process achieved by multi-actor relations derived from a sustained network of social innovation and collaboration in smaller cities. Focusing on the Swedish city of Umeå, this study focuses on answering the research question: How is the city of Umeå achieving a smart city transformation? For this purpose, this manuscript inductively examines the opinions and experience of several professionists and decision-makers involved in smart-city projects for a theoretical identification of the observed social phenomena allowing this sustained development.
