We participated one of the region's most important professional gathering, Central Europe towards Sustainable Building (CESB) conference on the 2nd of July in Prague. Viktor Bukovszki (ABUD) as co-author presented the publication "From Assessment To Implementation: Design Considerations For Scalable Decision-support Solutions In Sustainable Urban Development" (Viktor Bukovszki, Diána Apró, Ahmed Khoja, Prof. Dr. Natalie Essig, Dr. András Reith PhD).
The study explores the scalability of indicator systems into a shared framework for smart and sustainable cities by practice-based research during the development of the SmartCEPS project. SmartCEPS is an assessment system and maturity model based on key performance indicators (KPIs) for small- and medium-size European cities. In its architecture, indicators are organized in a causal network capable of capturing synergies, co-benefits and payoffs of decisions; structural metadata provides the means for a gradual customisation of the system; and finally, the indicator pool is scalable by complexity, ensuring different levels of detail in assessments. The study concludes that gradual customisation, network organisation, and open-ended scalability are the proxies for developing decision-support instruments from KPIs.
