Problem setting by the government, problem solving by the industry (Top-down)

The Taipei City Government will form different fields based on the needs proposed and seek innovative solutions, solicit projects externally, and execute experimental projects using the "Taipei Smart City Industry Field Pilot Program"

Industry proposing smart applications (Bottom-up)

The Taipei Smart City Industry Field Empirical PoC Program hopes to help smart city and Internet of things-related ecosystems take root in the city and to open up the experimental field of innovative city solutions in Taipei. By opening up smart city application-related proof of concept (PoC) to people’s proposal to the city government, the city government can in turn provide those interested with empirical evidence to serve as backup forces, thereby furthering operation models and example experiences.
