Smart University

The societies of our time are aware that education, training, research, innovation and entrepreneurship, the main goals of the university, are the strongest foundations of their cultural, social and economic progress, and the basis for the construction of their future. Therefore, the best that can be made to achieve prosperity is the endowment investment in education and training, which opens the doors of the future and brings greater economic, social and human benefits. The concept of Smart University, which follows the line of the more consolidated Smart City, pursues that the use of technology must be supported on two pillars: sustainability and participation. This guides to create more habitable and environmentally friendly campuses, in which the participation of university students in the teaching/learning and research processes, as well as the management and habitability of their campuses, be ruled by principles of transparency and good governance. Here are some of the dimensions of research and development for a university to become Smart University:

  • Smart People.
  • Smart Environment.
  • Smart Campus.
  • Smart Mobility.
  • Smart Economy.
  • Smart Technology.
  • Smart Energy.
  • Smart Living.
  • Smart Government.
