The SHERPA project, a European Commission Horizon 2020 grant project will feature Amsterdam City as a part of our case study on Smart Cities. We are currently looking for other cities to be involved, but are very excited for this collaboration. The SHERPA project will investigate, analyse and synthesise our understanding of the ways in which Smart Information Systems impact ethics and human rights issues.

Looking towards the future of technology, SHERPA is a project that will investigate, analyse and synthesise our understanding of the ways in which Smart Information Systems impact ethics and human rights issues. Sponsored by the European Commission's Horizon 2020 grant, SHERPA aims to clarify and exemplify the ethical and human rights issues of SIS through a series of methods, namely developing 10 case studies and 5 future-looking scenarios. The scenarios are focused on the transportation in the future, healthcare application of SIS, policing and the use of AI, warfare applications, and identity theft and mimicking
One of these case studies focuses on Smart Cities technologies and applications, specifically the social and ethical dimensions. The case study currently features Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Elsene and is looking for more cities to join.
SHERPA is co-ordinated by Professor Bernd Carsten Stahl, De Montfort University (UK). Its partners include Universiteit Twente (Netherlands), EUREC (European Network of Research Ethics Committees (Germany), University of Central Lancashire (Cyprus), Depoorter Dries (Belgium), Trilateral Research (UK), Stichting Nederlands Normalisatie (NEN) (Netherlands), Mutual Shoots Ltd (UK), Aequitas Ltd (Cyprus), European Business Summit (Belgium) and F-Secure OYJ (Finland).
Hello everyone, I am currently working with a group of academics and professionals around Europe on a project called SHERPA about the ethical implications of Smart Information Systems. I am collaborating on a case study about Smart Cities, and would be interested in interviewing anyone who is involved in Smart Cities around Europe. If anyone has any contacts in this area or are willing to participate, please let me know!
