In order to reach its vision of becoming a smart city, Stockholm will stimulate, guide and coordinate different digitalization projects. The strategy for Stockholm as a smart and connected city, together with the City's upcoming digitalization program, describes how this should be done. There are already many good local examples from the City of activities and projects that make the city smarter. Implementation of the strategy and the digitalization program will build upon all that is currently done and that has been done in Stockholm. All new investments should be based on the needs of the people who live or work in the city – and also those just visiting.
The way forward to make Stockholm a smart and connected city is innovation, openness and connectivity. And by making the city sustainable in four areas – economic, ecologic, democratic and social sustainability – the target is achieved: A Stockholm for all.
The strategy to become a smart and connected city has been developed together with residents, academia, business and analysis of global developments.
