If, from one hand, smart cities can create a fertile environment to drive innovation from a technological, managerial and organizational, and policy point of view by focusing on the environmental and social well-being, how smart cities function, in terms of their performance, growth, competitiveness, and well-being is still an open question. Based on these considerations, this work aims to investigate how smart cities deliver value by combining environmental, societal, and financial priorities to re-imagine their core business models and shift the boundaries of urban competition.
