Boundary Spanning in Smart City Governance

The lack of sufficient technical, social, cultural, and political work between various actors, such as IT companies, local authorities, and research institutes and universities in a smart city context impedes an effective collaboration to be built or prompts actors to be disconnected. Drawing on Boundary Spanning perspective, this study examines how boundary-spanning organizations act as a conduit to connect actors and facilitate the knowledge flow among them.
