The complexity of Smart Cities demands for integrated competences and innovative models to enable development of efficient buildings, sustainable mobility, smart grids, and participating communities. The CityFIT (The Smart City Finance & Technology) Program at the Department of Management and Production Engineering of Politecnico di Torino analyzes value creation, business models, and financing mechanisms for technologies and innovation of Smart Cities. The program is mainly involved in cataloging and categorizing projects, studying the business models of involved players, researching best practices and trends, evaluating development policies, connecting European and international directions, estimating potential return, and stimulating entrepreneurship. The program facilitates combination of the various involved disciplines and technological domains and enables matching between supply and demand of technologies and services for Smart Cities. Also, the program encourages development of innovative sources of financing and contract forms between the public and private sectors. The research program is a central point of coordination for municipalities, investors, lenders, and suppliers of Smart City products and innovation services to design common policies and facilitate finance into projects.
