Societal challenges
Today, 55% of worldwide population live in urban areas and this precentage is growing. In urban areas there are more developments, such as the increase in traffic and the energy transition. Inhabitants expect good and easy to use public services. 
In this context, governments have formulated global objectives, as outlined in the UN Sustainable Development Goals. This is further elaborated in the UN programme for Smart Sustainable Smart Cities. These policies, developments and expectations mean that there are many challenges for governments, companies and people.
