I’m pleased to announce that students at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) have won a Students for a Smarter planet award!

They call it:  Constructing a Smart City Composite Ranking

Their description

City-rankings have become a central instrument for assessing the attractiveness of urban regions. Demographic, environmental, economic, political and socio-cultural factors are encouraging the urban world to design Smart Cities. The smart city measures are achieved through carefully chosen indicators and allow cities to reorganize themselves successfully, via an understanding of its strengths and weaknesses.

The definition of metrics in the field of smart cities is driven by two principles: (1) to compare city-regions between themselves and learn from the best, and (2) to understand the internal dynamics of smart cities, define weaknesses, and recognize the effort needed to overcome them.

This study specifically focuses on weighting, Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), and aggregation methods.

We’re looking forward to seeing how this progresses.
