Impact Indicators

The establishment of this research alliance aims to promote the interaction of smart city technology applications and resource sharing among alliance members. The influence indicators are established by the alliance to evaluate the contribution of the alliance to sustainable smart cities. The influence indicators are as follows:

1. Cooperation project: The alliance will promote exchanges and interactions between members, and will jointly apply for and implement research projects.

2. Publish top journals or conference papers: Alliance members will jointly publish papers to top journals or conference papers.

3. The coverage ratio of the results from the alliance to the sustainable SDGs indicators: The UN’s SDGs include 17 sustainable goals and 169 targets. The alliance will examine the outcome of the alliance regarding the coverage of the SDGs indicators proposed by the UN.

4. Number of participants: The number of people participating in the alliance can be regarded as the reach rate of the alliance to the target audience. If the engaged numbers in the alliance can be increased, the exposure of the alliance can be improved, and at the same time, not only potential audiences but also the influence of the alliance can be increased.

5. The number of participating teams: To become a member of the alliance, it must be agreed upon by both parties, and must be approved by certain procedures. Therefore, the number of participating teams is used as an indicator for examining the influence of the alliance.
