Sandboxes, urban labs, smart offices, or controlled test environments are presented as spaces where new technologies, services and innovative business models can be tested. While Spain is articulating legal frameworks for their implementation on a state level, local entities are positioned strategically due to their proximity to citizens and the ownership of public spaces and infrastructures. This session will share the success stories of sandboxes being implemented in Santander, Alcoi, Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia.
