These Are The Smartest Cities In The World For 2019

London has been declared the smartest city in the world, according to the sixth edition of the annual IESE Cities in Motion Index 2019.

Prepared by IESE Business School’s Center for Globalization and Strategy, under the direction of professors Pascual Berrone and Joan Enric Ricart, the index looks at the level of development of 174 cities from 80 countries. The cities are analyzed across nine dimensions considered key to truly sustainable cities: human capital (developing, attracting and nurturing talent), social cohesion (consensus among the different social groups in a city), economy, environment, governance, urban planning, international outreach, technology, and mobility and transportation (ease of movement and access to public services).
