Smart Cities Workshop

SSE organized a workshop on Smart cities for its second year B.Sc Economics and Masters Development Studies students on 13th Jan 2016. The workshop aimed at discussing the various issues related to Smart Cities and Pune being one of the cities chosen to be a Smart City, in a comprehensive and co-ordinated manner. Mrs. Vasundhara Sen, Adjunct Faculty, SCMHRD and Mr. Naim Keruwala along with Dr. Jyoti Chandiramani, Director, SSE were the resource persons for the workshop. The resource persons discussed their views based on their expertise on the subject matter which was followed by an open discussion. Students from 21 groups came forward and posted their concerns based on their topic for the Smart Cities project while the resource persons tried to answer their queries. It was generally felt that the objectives of sharing information, learning of the current research activities and identifying the information gaps, were achieved in the workshop. However, due to limited time, a detailed discussion could not be held on differing methodologies, nor could decisions be made on specific actions to take the research agenda forward.
