A series of smart projects is slowly seeping its way across Turkey’s cities with one goal in mind: transforming the country into a digital hub. Part of Turkey’s 2023 Goals, these smart city concepts are stemming from years of investments in smart technology, which will save the country billions of euros annually, as well as provide the infrastructure necessary to fuel these future-focused technologies.
