Hoe kan 5G bijdragen aan de verduurzaming van steden, growing green cities?

Featured image

We brengen de Smart City Expo World Congress Barcelona naar je keukentafel!

BTG, gemeente Almere en Amsterdam Smart City nodigen je uit voor dit MRA evenement.

In een slimme stad zijn traditionele netwerken en diensten meer flexibel, efficiënt en duurzaam. Digitale informatie en telecomtechnologie laten de stad beter werken ten gunste van haar inwoners. Slimme steden zijn groener, veiliger en vriendelijker.

In de groeiende groene stad groeit innovatie mee om er voor te zorgen dat ze de wensen en behoeften van haar bewoners kan vervullen en voorspellen en kan verduurzamen. Dit heeft betrekking op mobiliteit, energie, circulariteit, infrastructuur, gezondheid en technologie.

Slimmere producten, diensten en een groter gebruik van data, sensoren en IoT stellen hogere eisen aan onze infrastructuur. Wifi 6, 5G en een fijnmaziger glasvezel netwerk met hogere snelheden zijn nodig. In dit webinar staan verschillende pilots op gebied van IoT en 5G centraal in de context van Floriade Expo 2022.

Programma 18 november

09.00 uur - Opening en welkom door Danny Frietman, Petra Claessen (BTG/TGG) en Leonie van den Beuken (ASC)

De mindset voor een menselijke slimme stad

Featured image

Met dit evenement brengen Amsterdam Smart City, BTG en de Gemeente Almere de Smart City Expo Barcelona naar je keukentafel!

Dat technologie kan helpen om de stad duurzamer en beter te maken, is niet nieuw. Het is de gedachte achter het concept ‘Smart City’ en de Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona die deze maand plaats zou vinden. Maar niemand wil in een Smart City wonen die zich alleen richt op technologie. Natuurlijk wel in een veilige, groene en bruisende stad.

Hoe creëren we die duurzame en leefbare steden? Hoe kan technologie hierin een nuttig middel zijn? Hoe zetten we mensen centraal in deze steden en nemen we hun waarden mee in de ontwikkeling?

Klaas van Egmond, hoogleraar Geowetenschappen, neemt ons mee in een inspirerend verhaal over de tijdsgeest en de mindset die nodig is om uitdagingen in steden aan te gaan. Vervolgens gaan we in gesprek. Hoe pas je deze mindset toe in je werk? Zie je partijen bij wie dit al goed lukt of juist niet? Daarna is er een roadshow met start-ups die betere straten, buurten en steden realiseren, met behulp van technologie. En als deelnemer kun je hen ook weer een stap verder helpen.

Als kers op de taart hebben we iets heel speciaals op de planning staan.. Hét online platform waar jij dagelijks online inspiratie en kennis haalt is volledig vernieuwd. Dit zullen we gezamenlijk en feestelijk met je lanceren!

Kortom, een evenement vol nieuwe inzichten, netwerk en inspiratie.

Programma 17 november 2020:

09.30 uur – Introductie

09.45 uur – Keynote door Klaas van Egmond + Q&A

10.20 uur – Breakouts – keukentafelgesprekken – nieuwe inzichten toegepast

10.45 uur - Break

10.55 uur – Roadshow door Metropoolregio – initiatieven die met behulp van tech betere straten, buurten, steden maken

11.10 uur – Lancering nieuw Amsterdamsmartcity.com

11.25 uur - Afsluiting

Doe mee! https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85274832895

A new Amsterdam Smart City platform coming up!

Featured image

You’re probably already familiar with our online platform to share your news, projects and events with the Amsterdam Smart City community. Or you use this website to find news about smart cities, check out upcoming events and read about our organisation.

There are some changes on the way… Soon we will launch a brand new platform!!

Amsterdamsmartcity.com

We all want to live and work in a healthy city and region, now and in the future. Cities are getting busier and we are experiencing the effects of climate change and pollution. That is why we need solutions to guarantee a livable future. Technology is not the challenge here. Real progress can be made in finding, connecting and collaborating with likeminded people and organizations.

Why a new platform

Four years ago the new amsterdamsmartcity.com was launched in the Johan Cruijff ArenA. Not your ordinary website, but a unique interactive platform in the smart city sector. To tackle the challenges we are facing in cities, we need each other. Our platform helped a smart city community to find each other, share, connect and make an impact together! Soon more than 600 people joined the community and shared their work to make better streets, neighbourhoods and cities. And the amount of people grew more and more.

The look and feel of the first ASC community platform, three years ago

Now, four years later the Amsterdam Smart City expanded to more than 8000 people, 300+ projects and organizations and daily contributions. The platform is visited by people from all over the world. We got in touch with a brand new group of innovators, made it possible to connect them to our existing community, grew a network. Now it’s time to innovate the platform for the innovators, right?!

What’s new?

The community is growing, contributions are increasing, and more information is displayed on the platform. Therefore we are making an alternative that improves the overview and gives you control over the e-mails that are sent. And because the smart city field is a diverse field, with lots of themes, challenges and angles, we will help you reach the content that is of your specific interest.

Furthermore we hope to show you more of the program of Amsterdam Smart City. We are an open innovation platform and workspace for partners and the community. We facilitate collaboration in various types of events, of which a lot is done offline. And we want to involve you more in what’s happening offline in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area.

Welcome!

A platform that will give you a better overview, helps you to connect to likeminded people and looks great! A platform with personalized content and e-mails, but also the occasional outside-your-bubble content. In the onboarding we will help you to get to know all the features. But more on that later!

We are looking forward to welcoming you on the new platform from the 17th of November and look forward to your feedback!

Please note: the website will be offline for a while on the 12th of November. At the end of the day, we will be back with the new platform. As a member of our community, you will automatically receive an e-mail to reactivate your account.

The Road to Smart City Live

This year we cannot meet in Barcelona but we have decided to take our event online on November 2nd, 9th and 16th preceding Smart City Live 2020 (Nov 17-18).

The Road to Smart City Live is focused on developing the innovation system and connecting stakeholders to urban challenges. The purpose of this digital event is to provide government, city representatives, start-ups, SME’s, corporates, experts and investors with a platform to initiate long-term partnerships. National organizations and cities from all over the world will come together to establish new alliances and build on existing ones.

Over 30 session are already planned. Join Amsterdam, Stockholm, Singapore, Busan, The Hague, Dortmund, ITEA and many more. Cherry pick your sessions now, by registering for free. Matchmaking is facilitated by the Enterprise Europe Network.

Participation is free of charge but registration is required via: https://smart-city-2020.b2match.io/signup

We highlight a few workshops organized by the City of Amsterdam and Amsterdam Smart City:

Amsterdam: Towards flexible electricity grids – innovations on multiple levels

Nov 9, 13:00 – 14:00

In order to reach its objectives of becoming a climate neutral city by 2050, there is an urgent need for smart systems that balance supply and demand on the electricity grid in Amsterdam. Currently it seems that technical solutions are well on their way. However, solutions that increase flexibility on the grid (“FLEX”) are not implemented at scale yet. Innovations in the legal, financial and governance domain are most likely required as well. The City of Amsterdam is exploring which FLEX solutions are applicable in Amsterdam and which conditions are necessary to scale them. How can we organize innovation in such a way that experimentation with FLEX solutions leads to a large implementation? Where, as a municipality, do we need to strengthen our efforts? Moreover, what should the collaboration, responsibilities, and division of roles between market players and government look like in developing scalable FLEX solutions?

Amsterdam: Innovators – How to work with governments?

Nov 16 at 13:00 – 13:45

Government bodies and companies very often have different working styles which can make a cooperation difficult. Moreover, it can be difficult especially for start-up’s or scale-up’s to find a “way in” and to understand the often complicated purchasing process of government bodies.

Amsterdam: Governments – How to work with innovative companies?

Nov 16, 14:00 – 14:45

It can be very difficult for government bodies to get innovation and innovative solutions to the public challenges of the cities or regions. Amongst others that can be due to different working style and unknowingly excluding smaller yet more innovative market players due to complicated purchasing procedures and requirements. In this workshop we will introduce different methods and purchasing projects and their commonalities in attracting innovative companies. We will discuss what we learned from previous programs and what is necessary to ensure a fruitful cooperation that creates value for the citizens of the government body

Look Back To See Forward – Daily Recap & Drinks

Nov 2, 9 & 16, 16:15 – 16:45

During this fun and interactive 30-minute program we will recap the most inspiring moments and key lessons from the day that you’ve experienced as participants. It’s the perfect way to keep the momentum going, strengthen existing partnerships and make new connections! Grab a drink and join us for this informal program. This session is organized and hosted in collaboration between Amsterdam Smart City, Amsterdam Trade & Innovate, and The Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO).
