Event Details

The Programmable City project, funded through a five year Advanced Investigator Award to Prof. Rob Kitchin at Maynooth University, will come to a close at the end of May 2018. This event will mark the conclusion of the project by presenting the main findings and recommendations from across the sub-projects to stakeholders. The focus will very much be on practical lessons for smart city development.

In total 16 researchers worked on the project at some point during its lifetime, mainly undertaken fieldwork in Dublin and Boston, but also other cities. A diverse range of smart city issues – open and big data, policy formulation, city standards, traffic control, testbeds, smart districts, bike share, smart energy, emergency management response, procurement by challenge, smart lighting, property development, hackathons, citizenship, work practices, governance, and ethical and security considerations – were investigated from a social, cultural, political, economic and ethical perspective through policy analysis, c. 500 interviews, and ethnographic research. In addition, part of the team built the Dublin Dashboard.

This research has led to a number of activities and outputs, including 7 books and 3 more under contract, a special issue of a journal, a report for the Data Forum of the Taoiseach’s Department, 29 academic papers published and others in progress, 29 book chapters, 15 other publications, 10 workshops and 25 seminars/panel discussions organized (with 131 online videos) See

 A number of team members have progressed to other academic posts around the world (Australia, Belgium, Canada, England, Ireland, Taiwan, Wales) but all will be returning to Dublin to join the rest of the team to present their work through quick, snappy talks with time for questions. In addition, there will be a chance to view some of our latest dashboards work, with an AR/VR demo of 3D Dublin planning application.

We invite you to join us at this event to discover what lessons smart city developments might learn from our research.
