Smart Societies ( is an active research project led by a group of growing number of individuals interested in themes of education, research and innovation in emerging economies. The project specifically examines the changing social, political, education and business landscapes and the forces and under-currents that are transforming economies in the Asia Pacific, Africa and Latin American regions.

The project invites individuals interested in contributing articles, information and promotional items relating to:

– social, political and economic trends; and

– developments in research and innovation, especially relating to the higher education sector

Articles should range between 500 to 1000 words.

The project recently expanded into Flipboard Magazine with access through Web, Android and iPhone (including iPads) – .
