National University of Battambang Engages in International Smart City Project in Greece

Dr. Sam Rany, Vice-Rector who is a representative of H.E. Sok Khorn, Rector of the National University of Battambang, recently spearheaded a delegation to Thessaly University on April 16-21, 2024 in Greece. The visit centered around participation in the "Smart City ASEAN Learning Network (SCALE)" project meeting and related study tours. This initiative, co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, seeks to enhance the capabilities of educators, researchers, operators, policymakers, and students involved in smart city management.

The SCALE project's primary aim is to facilitate the upskilling of current and future professionals in the field, ensuring they are well-prepared to contribute to the development of smart cities. Additionally, it focuses on expanding educational opportunities for both young learners and the existing workforce, a move seen as essential for a just, efficient, and sustainable transition to smarter urban environments.

Cambodia proudly hosts three burgeoning smart cities: Phnom Penh, Battambang, and Siem Reap. These cities are at the forefront of the country’s push towards modernized, efficient urban planning and management.
