Project Implementer

Formerly branded as the “Smart Sustainable City Feasibility Study Program, or “F/S,” the WeGO Project Implementer provides financial support and technical assistance to member cities to facilitate their transformation into smart sustainable cities.

ABOUT

WeGO has since its establishment been providing financial support and technical assistance to member cities to facilitate their transformation into smart sustainable cities. Formerly branded as the “Smart Sustainable City Feasibility Study Program, or “F/S,” the WeGO Project Implementer aims to assess its member cities’ current smart city development status, draw practical strategies and implement pilot projects that align with the local and/or national development goals and plans, in cooperation with the selected consultants. For each beneficiary local government whose project proposal is selected, WeGO will sponsor an amount up to KRW 110,000,000 (approx. USD 92,000) toward services from a consultant and solution provider with the needed expertise. The local government, in turn, will be required to contribute both financially and in kind toward further expansion of the project, and the proposals which demonstrate a higher commitment and preparedness to do so will have an advantage in the selection process.

Enabling Better Decision-making through Open-source Infrastructure

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Project Implementer 2020 has been postponed to next year.

This year’s Project Implementer will focus on building infrastructure that enables better decision-making by involving not just government, but citizens and business in an intelligent, connected ecosystem which operates at the intersection of the 3 “D”s: data, digital, and human-centered design. The next generation of urban evolution – Smart City 2.0 – involves moving beyond mere infrastructure upgrades and into the comprehensive use of sensing technology and data analytics, providing improved public services and a higher quality of life by listening to citizens and engaging them as “co-creators” of citizen-centric solutions. To this aim, WeGO seeks scalable projects that focus on building digital infrastructure which recognize citizens as an important source of data generation, solution development, and a testing base for both governments and businesses.
