This is a study on smart city projects in Brazil and the influence of local context on the projects conception. A qualitative research was conducted on two different smart city projects from distinct regions of Brazil: the city of Campinas, from the southeastern region, and the city of Salvador, from the northeastern region. Both projects fall under the same national guidelines for technology development, the ENCTI 2012-2015. The projects policies were compared to understand if and how local context can shape a smart city project.
