Modern cities are changing to become more reliant upon technology for better personal, social, and economic outcomes for all citizens. The core of enabling a smart city plan relies on a comprehensive understanding of its drivers and technological aid requirements. Hence, technology roadmapping as one of the most effective approaches need to be considered to aligning the smart cities strategies with planning in the field of technology, while the focus on the most technology roadmapping studies has been limited to the development of industrial technology and product development. Thus, to support the achievement of the smart cities, this study aims to adapt and utilise Strategic Technology Alignment Roadmapping (STAR) methodology to guid and justify investment in smart city’s R&D projects to achieve the optimum project portfolio. The method is tested in a real case study, which shows how STAR methodology can be effective to implement throughout the worldwide smart cities development to support strategic technology investments.
