Abstract

Recently in Russia, a shift in a political discourse towards the innovative economy, new technologies and smart cities solutions is noticeable. There are several national programs and strategies that orient economic development to use innovations and digital technologies. However, those initiatives seem too focused on technological solutions and lack a comprehensive understanding of what smart development is. A missing component might be provided from the bottom level through the use of the place-based approach and implementation of smart planning tools responding to the wicked local problems. The paper explores opportunities provided by the current national policy in the Russian Federation and the local conditions of the city of Rostov-on-Don in Southern Russia for the implementation of the innovative decision-making support tool in urban planning. The findings demonstrate that the introduction of the innovative decisionmaking support tool corresponds to the current transformation processes happening in a contemporary Russian city, requests from the national level and, consequently, it can be replicated in a similar context.
