Digital City

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!

Playground Installation Responsible in Gemeente Amsterdam

Recently, we submitted a project for Green Energy Playground for The Whole Family in Amsterdam:
It is a ready-to-implement project. And we are fully prepared to deliver the solution once we receive an approval.
In this regard, we are looking for a responsible person in Gemeente Amsterdam who deals with the installation of new playgrounds, and the equipment of public spaces.
I would like to receive a proper feedback and to find out how to realize the project in order to give Amsterdam another innovative feature :))

Looking for contacts in building area

Dear reader,

For a project of the University of Applied Sciences, we are doing research on the use of diesel generators in the Netherlands. We focus on reducing CO2 emissions by lessening the use of the generators. Building companies can profit because of lower diesel costs.

We would like to get in touch with people working in the building area or with people who can connect us to the right people. We have a few questions to ask.

Kind regards,

T: 0621130423

Beste Lezer,

Voor een onderzoeksproject in opdracht van de Hogeschool van Amsterdam, doen wij onderzoek naar het gebruik van dieselaggregaten in Nederland. Het onderzoek is gericht op het reduceren van Co2 uitstoot door het verminderen van het verbruik bij dieselaggregaten. Hiermee kunnen de dieselkosten van bouwbedrijven aanzienlijk worden verlaagd.

Graag zouden wij in contact willen komen met personen die werkzaam zijn of ons kunnen verbinden met mensen in de bouwbranche. Wij zouden graag wat korte vragen willen stellen omtrent dit onderwerp.

Alvast bedankt,


T: 0621130423

Possible partnership with Dharamshala

Dharamshala is selected as a smart city under the smart cities mission in India. Dharamshala Smart City (DSC) has received funding from the central government to develop it as a smart city in the next 5 years. DSC is very keen to collaborate with Netherlands on G2G level, K2K and B2B level. They are also looking at getting experts from Netherlands who can support DSC in urban planning, water, waste, mobility and planning for a smart city. It would be very interesting to explore and Amsterdam smart city would be interested in partnering with DSC and providing knowledge sharing.

- design Zero Energy Building; - Analysis of the supply grid operator of small and medium-sized areas ;

- Design of electric vehicles with the most innovative technologies in today's market ;

- Waste material treatment and management.

I would like to be involved in a project in those areas to increase my knowledge and capability, because in the next years I would find myself as an active participant.

i am looking for cooperation/a team

airbnb is not the new economy, couchsurfing is
maybe the best name for this economy is: gift economy
it's all about cooperation instead of competition
there is a natural tendency for the many gift economy initiatives to unite but how to accomplish this unity?
i want to contribute the power of the semantic web to this unification motion
in particular i want to use DEMO (
i have a simulation on how this could work, see:
if you want to cooperate please contact me at jeroen[at]guts4roses[dot]org

Looking for collaboration with Urban Real Estate Planner and Developers for a greenfield Smart City project in India

The Government of India has identified 100 cities in the country to be developed as Smart Cities that are intended to be emulated by the Urban Local Bodies across rest of the country. 20 Cities have been identified in the first phase and SPVs are already in place. This is the high time to get into alliances to start promoting concepts and building relationships with different stakeholders interested in Smart Cities market in India.
