All information mentioned in this research will be treated as strictly confidential. Quantitative data will be subject to a statistical report to measure the interest of an international federation project about Smart Cities. Personal information will not be published. No nominative data will be published in media.
Following several cities requests, time to respond remains available until the end of February 2014.
