Smart Cities Communities of Practice

Smart Cities, Regions and Towns Stakeholder Survey

In 2019 the department sought stakeholder feedback on the challenges and opportunities to support smart cities, regions and towns across Australia. Recipients included industry associations, state and territory governments, universities, research and development organisations, local governments and other relevant stakeholders.

The survey opened on 9 July and closed on 29 July 2019. The survey was directly emailed to 1593 stakeholders and was completed by 343 individuals.

Smart Cities Communities of Practice

The survey identified interest in participating and leading Communities of Practice as a way to share experiences and facilitate collaboration.

These will be updated as relevant information becomes available. If you know of a Community of Practice not listed or would like to establish one, please provide this information by emailing the relevant details to the department's Cities mailbox.
