People get more connected and technology becomes part of our daily life. Between 2014 and 2015 there was a 27% growth of internet traffic in Amsterdam. Eleven out of fifteen Trans-Atlantic data cables are connected with or go through Amsterdam and the AMS-IX is the second largest internet exchange point in the world. In 2016 Amsterdam was ranked second in the European Digital City Index. Do you work on a smarter city? Share your technologies here!

Looking for players in the sharing & platform economy interested in travelling to a sharing economy exhibition in Japan!

On November 20-22 the Japan Management Association is organizing a sharing economy exhibition. The idea is to combine an exhibition (with booths from Japanese and international companies) with a conference. A total of 5000 visitors and 100 exhibitors are expected. The Dutch Embassy in Japan is actively looking for companies that wish to speak at the conference or that wish to exhibit their company. There are a growing number of Japanese corporates in the Energy, Transport, Real Estate and Consumer Goods as well as Employment Agencies, that are interested in incorporating (foreign) sharing concepts. This makes the Japanese market very interesting for companies active in the Sharing economy. If you are interested, let me know and I'll bring you in contact with the Dutch Embassy.

Seeking feedback on IoT problems

We'd like to have returns of experience from municipalities and other corporations involved in setting-up, managing and servicing IoTs. What are the different problems and approaches that have been encountered when Smart Cities face the the need to inspect and maintain their IoTs.
We handle geographically distributed tasks and wonder to what extend the need to provide rapid response for IoT maintenance helps to keep citizen satisfaction and quality of big data.

Vacature programmamanager bij Gemeente Amsterdam

Vaste baan, voor 36 uur
Vacaturenummer: 18050243
Geplaatst op: 4 juli 2018

De functie
Als Programmamanager Data ben je verantwoordelijk voor de ontwikkeling en aansturing van een programma waarin een aantal opgaven, die een sleutelrol spelen in de modernisering en digitalisering in de gemeente Amsterdam worden aangepakt. Deze opgaven gaan over de ontwikkeling van de organisatie en de infrastructuur voor het ontsluiten en gebruiken van data, de activiteiten voor datacollectie en voor het opstellen van de basisstatistieken.

In Amsterdam wordt sinds drie jaar gewerkt aan een nieuwe infrastructuur voor het ontsluiten en gebruiken van databronnen binnen en buiten de gemeentelijke organisatie. Deze infrastructuur is de centrale voorziening voor toegang tot databronnen op een gestandaardiseerde en veilige manier en draagt de naam Datapunt. Onderdeel hiervan is de website http://data.amsterdam.nl

Er wordt gewerkt op basis van agile methodes in een aantal teams. In totaal werken ongeveer dertig professionals, variërend van programmeurs en onderzoekers tot ontwerpers en van infrastructuurexperts tot functioneel beheerders in deze teams. Er wordt zo veel mogelijk gebruik gemaakt van open source componenten. Ook de software die wordt ontwikkeld is open source. Meer hierover is te vinden op http://amsterdam.github.io

Onlangs is de inrichting van data governance voor de gemeente Amsterdam vastgesteld. Daarin zijn afspraken vastgelegd over de kaders voor het inwinnen, opslaan, beheren, ontsluiten en gebruiken van data. Tevens zijn de tactische en operationele taken voor het uitvoeren van de ontsluiting van data en het adviseren over het gebruik centraal belegd bij Onderzoek, Informatie en Statistiek. Dit is het organisatiedeel dat ook Datapunt ontwikkelt en beheert.

Als programmamanager data ben je verantwoordelijk voor de realisatie van DataPunt en voor de implementatie van het data governance beleid. Niet alleen moet er een ICT-Voorziening worden gebouwd, ook moet er een lijnorganisatie worden ingericht die gebruik maakt van de voorziening, het beheer verzorgt en de doorontwikkeling vormgeeft. Je werkt daarbij intensief samen met de product owner voor Datapunt, tevens lead devops.

De modernisering van de wijze waarop OIS de gegevens verwerkt die nodig zijn voor het opstellen van de basisstatistieken over de stad, zoals bevolking en woningen, maakt onderdeel uit van de opgave. Dit geldt ook voor datacollectie, de activiteiten op het gebied van enquêtering en het bewonerspanel. Voor de komende fase is het van belang om de ontsluiting van databronnen in de stad te versnellen en in samenwerking met de business de ontwikkeling van nieuwe toepassingen te faciliteren. Je werkt hierbij intensief samen met de andere teams binnen OIS die de business inhoudelijk bedienen.

Je werkt in een van de meest inspirerende werkomgevingen van Amsterdam: Het Datalab. Dit lab, gelegen aan de Weesperstraat in het centrum van Amsterdam is de centrale plek in de stad waar gewerkt wordt aan datavraagstukken en daaraan gelieerde innovatieve toepassingen.

Werkzaamheden:
• Opstellen strategie en uitvoeringsplan voor het implementeren van het data governance beleid;
• Coördineren van de samenwerking met andere organisatieonderdelen binnen en buiten OIS;
• Actieve participatie in de doorontwikkeling van OIS en de gemeente Amsterdam;
• Sturen op de resultaten van de teams die werken aan de ontwikkeling en het beheer van Datapunt, de basisstatistieken en datacollectie;
• Management op het investeringsproject Datapunt;
• Binnen de gemeente en daarbuiten vertegenwoordigen van OIS op het gebied van data diensten.

Wij vragen
• Academisch werk- en denkniveau;

• Op de hoogte van de mogelijkheden van tools en technologie op het gebied van platforms voor data management en moderne applicatieontwikkeling;
• Kennis en affiniteit met onderzoek en statistiek;
• Belangstelling voor innovatieve technieken op het vakgebied zoals machine learning en beslissingsondersteunende systemen;
• Een teamspeler; bij OIS vindt al het werk, dus ook sturing en organisatieontwikkeling, in teams plaats;
• Belangstelling voor scrum / agile werken en werken met zelforganiserende teams;
• Een groot doorzettingsvermogen en de wil om iets te bereiken;
• De competentie om samen te kunnen werken met partners en het kunnen verenigen van verschillende belangen;
• Een klantgerichte, positieve en pro-actieve houding.

Competenties
Verder verwachten we van jou een nieuwsgierige en creatieve houding en het vermogen om als leider te motiveren en inspireren. Je houdt van realiseren van nieuwe oplossingen en het verbazen van anderen door samenwerking in teams. Ook heb je affiniteit met stedelijke ontwikkelingen, uitstekende technische vaardigheden en een sterk gevoel voor de visualisatie en presentatie van eindproducten. Je bent communicatief vaardig en spreekt zowel de taal van ontwikkelaars, onderzoekers, data-analisten, statistici en survey specialisten als de taal van de business.

Wij bieden
• Een unieke kans om te werken in het centrum van Amsterdam en mee te werken aan innovatieve projecten over en voor de stad;
• Een omgeving met hooggekwalificeerde medewerkers op een breed spectrum van expertisegebieden;
• Afhankelijk van je opleiding en werkervaring bedraagt het salaris minimaal € 4.770,- en maximaal € 6.574,- bruto per maand (salarisschaal 14) op basis van 36 uren per week;
• De gemeente Amsterdam kent prima opleidings- en ontwikkelingsmogelijkheden plus een goed pakket secundaire arbeidsvoorwaarden. Deze secundaire arbeidsvoorwaarden bestaan o.a. uit opname in het ABP-pensioenfonds, een maandelijkse bijdrage in de ziektekostenverzekering en per 1 januari 2017 het Individueel Keuzebudget. Dit is een vrij besteedbaar budget. Je kunt bijvoorbeeld zelf beslissen wanneer je het budget wil laten uitbetalen en hoeveel extra verlof je nodig hebt.

De organisatie
Amsterdam is een unieke stad. Aantrekkelijk om te wonen, werken en studeren en toonaangevend als dynamische internationale metropool. Tegelijkertijd staat de stad voor een grote uitdaging. De snelle verandering van onze samenleving leidt tot nieuwe opgaven voor de stad. Een van die opgaven is het beter en slimmer benutten van gegevens van en over de stad. Onderzoek, Informatie en Statistiek (OIS) van de gemeente Amsterdam speelt hierin een belangrijke rol. OIS helpt de stad beter te begrijpen en verder te ontwikkelen, onder andere door het creëren van nieuwe kennis en het gebruiken van deze nieuwe inzichten om bestaande gemeentelijke processen te verbeteren. De medewerkers van OIS zijn specialisten op diverse stedelijke domeinen en zijn in staat om met moderne middelen kennis uit literatuur, mensen en data samen te brengen teneinde de genoemde opgaven te realiseren.
Informatie

De gemeente Amsterdam wil een diverse en inclusieve organisatie zijn.

We streven ernaar dat het personeelsbestand een afspiegeling is van de beroepsbevolking van Amsterdam met al haar aanwezige verschillen. Vacatures staan open voor iedereen, tenzij uitdrukkelijk anders vermeld.
Acquisitie wordt niet op prijs gesteld.

USA school teacher: opportunities to learn about Dutch climate mitigation/adaptation strategies Jun28-July7

Hello! I'm hoping (at the very last minute) to connect with some folks who might be interested in sharing their work with me through a brief informal tour or interview while I'm here in the Netherlands for the next 8 or 9 days. I'm here with the help of a small, self directed grant to develop a unit of study for my students in Chicago that will inspire them to better understand climate change as a global issue with which they can engage in creative ways in their local context. I'm interested in more or less any and all work happening around Amsterdam (or Utrecht, where I'll be from July 3-July 5, or Wageningen, July 5- July 7) that relates to the effects of climate change or mitigation/adaptation strategies. This could include any climate relevant public or private work in the electricity, transportation, building, industrial, agricultural, tech, or education sectors. For example, if you are involved with a start up that does circular economy work that reduces emissions, have a perspective to share on regional transportation, know something about zero emission architecture, or work in education and are interested in developing collaborations in terms of sustainability/climate curriculum, I'm interested in hearing from you and (in an ideal world) chatting for 30 minutes or an hour. My students are typically low income, racial minority teenagers who I believe need to be empowered to make the future as much as their economically well off and culturally "mainstream" peers. Most of my students are also soon to be voting eligible citizens of the USA, which seems relevant. Anyway, I appreciate you considering my vague request! I am of course thrilled about the wealth of resources available through Smart City Amsterdam (including the very cool new Amsterdam Innovation Tour app), and I've booked, for example, a standard tour on Friday through architour. But unfortunately my dates of travel did not align with WeMakeTheCity, the ASC Open House is not happening this Friday, and many of the other tour options are out of my price range as an individual traveling on a small grant. Thanks for any and all input. Cheers!

Call for proposal: Amsterdam self-guided innovation tour

The City of Amsterdam’s Chief Technology Office (CTO) and Amsterdam Smart City (ASC) receive numerous requests from international delegations interested in Amsterdam’s urban innovations and smart city projects. Delegations consist primarily of civil servants and private sector professionals but we also get requests from researchers, journalists, students and other “innovation tourists”.

In the face of rising demand, we have decided to scale our impact by providing a self-guided tour that will facilitate knowledge transfer. The tour will be launched during We Make The City Festival (20-24 June 2018).

ASC will provide content for the tour but we are seeking a technology partner to help us communicate in an innovative and effective way.

Main criteria for selection:
• The solution will help ASC communicate on ~10 different innovation topics;
• The solution works with Android and iOS devices;
• The solution will help users navigate from point to point;
• The solution works offline;
• The solution leverages innovative infrastructure (e.g., beacons or JC Decaux digital marketing screens) and/or AR capabilities.

NB: Developing a new app is not feasible due to ASC’s limited budget and timeline. Therefore, we suggest leveraging existing technology.
Deadline: Your prototype is available for testing by 4 June and finalized by 20 June
Budget: Your total cost of delivery and support is less than €13,000

If you are interested in this project, then please email a one page proposal to cornelia@amsterdamsmartcity.com by 18:00 Friday, 4 May. Please include the following information in your proposal:
• Description of your solution and how it meets our needs

Brazil: City of Sorocaba is searching for Smart City collaboration

Beginning of this month I’ve visited the Town Hall of Sorocaba in Brazil. The secretaries of urban planning Mrs. Zacareli and Mr. Fioravante informed me about their current projects and ambitions around Smart City. They also shared their vision to make the municipality more sustainable and pleasant for its inhabitants. Sorocaba is looking for international collaborations.

The city of Sorocaba in the São Paulo state has 700.000 inhabitants, the metropolitan area of Sorocaba consists of 27 municipalities with a total of more than 2 million inhabitants. The industrial park boasts more than 25 million square meters and over 1,600 industries.

The city is foreseeing a growth of the municipality’s service package due to the growing metropolitan area of Sorocaba and the influx of inhabitants coming from São Paulo. Sorocaba embraces a smarter and more sustainable approach to cope with the future urban challenges.

With the recently started IPLASO ( Institute for Planning of Sorocaba ) the municipality is making a start to coordinate urban projects and unite stakeholders to share visions and implement plans.

In general, the municipality is looking for knowledge, best practices, guidance and support with enrolling their Smart City vision and sustainable urban projects within IPLASO. More specific, Sorocaba is looking for solutions to use their data better and to improve their health and municipal services.

In the Netherlands I’m supporting Sorocaba with their plans. Who wants to join?

Feel free to contact me via +31617456045 or christian.fasting@brazilservices.nl

It will be my pleasure to share my experiences in Sorocaba and Brazil with you.

Research about smart city initiatives in Amsterdam

Hi people!

We are a group of students from Lund University (Sweden), studying our Master in Information Systems. In one of our courses, we are doing research about sustainable/smart cities in Europe and (of course) we selected Amsterdam!

We are looking for managers and entrepreneurs from both the private and public sector involved in initiatives or SME focusing on smart cities, technology, energy and sustainability. Any kind of area focusing on Smart cities.

We are interested in knowing how you got involved in the smart city projects, the products/services you are offering, we are also going to ask different agreement statements for further insights of your involvements.

The answers we’ll be gathering will be used for further research within the area of Smart Cities. The interviews however will be done through skype or by call and will take around 30 minutes to finish.

Perhaps you’re asking yourself “What’s in it for me?” Well, first and foremost you’ll be helping four students to complete their assignment and if you’re interested you can continue to be a part of the further research to come within the area since one of our professors is focusing on Smart City development and IT sustainability.

We would be very grateful if you took your time to answer our interview questions and we are looking forward to hear from you.

We would really appreciate any feedback

To get in touch with us, please contact me on waldau.fredrik@gmail.com
