Looking for thesis research topics on smart cities

Hi to all members of the community,

I have been following what people are talking around here and the more I read, the more I want to contribute in a way to help the development of smart cities knowledge.

As a short intro about myself, next year I'm going to be in the fourth and last year of my bachelor called "Business Innovation" in Amsterdam. I have a desire to do a research that focuses on the greater society and solving issues for people/planet, and I believe smart cities can offer that.

To be clear, I am not interested in doing research for i.e. "best practices inside a company to develop x,y,z"; but looking for topics such as "How will people's life change in the next 20 years in cities because of high migration number, and how smart cities can help?"

I would like to ask the community's suggestions to what are, in your opinion, important research topics worth of digging in; and secondly, if you know a company that might need me.

Key words: smart grids, renewable energy, blockchain, IoT, transportation, community, sharing economy, citizens empowerment; government; buildings; circular economy;

I'm very curious what you have on your mind, so please share it with me. Thank you!

Best regards,

Hi Tudor,

I'm Cosmin Pirvu, CEO at IntelFlows. I think it is great that you are interested in such topics , and want to contribute :)

We, at IntelFlows, share the same interests, and are working towards making our cities better living environments, using latest technologoies. We are developing an air pollution monitoring system for (smart) cities, with the first pilot already ongoing in Hungary.

If you are interested in knowing more, I would love to start a conversation with you.

Best regards,
