SMART iLab is a new generation non-profit think-tank organization which does not prefer to constrain its potential with only theoretical areas, but also have a powerful desire to encourage tangible solutions through its stakeholders.
Smart City is a global concept comprising of hundreds of different sectors and thousands of various sub-sections. Therefore, we especially focus on 7 main categories to develop expertise – Energy, Mobility, Security, Healthcare, Environment, Governance and Economy – , but wish to cover other areas as many as possible since they are inseparable parts of a smart city vision in a holistic think-tank perspective and a clear-cut separation may not be rational.
A smart city is the results of combined efforts of many stakeholders, working together in partnerships of different shape and form, but the core concept is well beyond of cities or new architectures. Albert Einstein once said, ‘‘We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them’’. We consider that the concept at the top is about a new way of thinking to redesign human life and living areas with the power of collective wisdom, creativity and technology.
We believe that our collective responsibilities, shared knowledge and combined efforts may create a better value and take all of us much more beyond the old-school synergy capabilities.
No matter where you are (!) or No matter what you do (!)
We would like to build up a new global hub for all of us and to create a better future for our world.
We have four challenging common purposes for all, but note that we cannot achieve any of them without your help and we are always open to all innovative offers to expand mutual benefits;
(I) Increasing public awareness and citizen knowledge at a global scale through our core think-tank activities especially by sharing your articles, expert opinions, analyses and case studies to the world through our internet platform,
(II) Creating a global networking hub by providing common communication and sharing mediums, and encouraging international partnerships, projects & collaborations at all levels. Instead of providing temporary contacts, creating connections to promote continuous dialogues and developing permanent relationships are our fundamental goals,
(III) Initiating a ‘Global Civil Diplomacy’’ program to promote sector relations between countries. The program will aim to i) mobilize civil capacity with all of its channels at a global scale, ii) develop civil diplomacy channels & networks for various sector themes and iii) reinforce international knowledge sharing & technology transfers,
(IV) Encouraging participation of value based smart city start-ups to be able to create a sustainable holistic eco-system. For this purpose, we would like to provide critical mentorship through our valuable stakeholders, to channel new investment opportunities and to achieve a more fruitful eco-system at a global scale.
Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of our lives. We, together, can create a better world and bigger opportunities.
We need your VOICE and need your WISDOM because we make sense much more together (!)
