Abstract: 

This STSM (short-term scientific mission) investigates how digital play and games may contribute to fostering citizen engagement and participation in the smart city.

By addressing this question the STSM contributes to ongoing research and debates about people-centric perspectives of the relationship between Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) and urban public spaces, which is the main aim of the EU funded COST1306 Action "Cyberparks".

The outcomes of this STSM provide COST TU1306 with a better grasp of the current state of affairs in "playful city" or "playable city" research and development, and contribute to the exchange of ideas and the development of shared interest and networks for future collaborations.
