Abstract: With the escalating influx of  Open data daily (Alavi et al., 2018),  the European Commission, as per  the European’s 2022 Strategic Foresight Report (European Commission, 2022), prioritizes fostering equitable,  greener and  digital societies.  The conversion of conventional services to digital platforms to support citizens in urban areas is now becoming the norm, posing challenges for accessible civic infrastructures (Alavi et al., 2018). As Open data is defined as data that can be freely used, re-used, and redistributed by anyone it is expected to bring forth opportunities and societal adjustment challenges.  Open Data and Smart Cities may be regarded as developing research areas even though it has been under examination for the last 20 years (Deng et al., 2021). The intersection of Open Data and Smart Cities is an evolving research realm, necessitating new skills and competences due to Smart Cities implementations. Our systematic literature review identifies and explores these research gaps unveiling potential areas for development or further study.

Keywords: Open Data, Smart Cities, Skills, Training.
