Where do the Amsterdam Smart City Programs take place?

Most programs take place, or at least start at, the Smart City Lab on the Marineterrein Innovation District. This is a "small space for big ideas" where we showcase examples of smart city solutions from Amsterdam. The Smart City Experience Lab is also a workplace where Amsterdam Smart City partners meet and collaborate. Groups visiting the Experience Lab can also visit the Marineterrein Amsterdam Living Lab on their own or as a part of an organized program.

Covid-19 restrictions

Due to government-imposed regulations in response to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, we are currently only able to host programs online.

Data Science for Smart Cities

Responsible Data Science for Smart Cities; Can cities collect massive amounts of data on its residents and their daily practices, and yet remain safe, transparent and democratic? Today, cities are collecting more and more data, and the city of Amsterdam is at the forefront of publishing such "city data” and launching data driven services to improve its liveability. For example, data on the increasing use of electric charging points, smart waste collection systems, and good traffic flow can all be used to reduce costs and minimise waste. In this master class we provide an overview to the way Big Data is being used to make challenges in the city of Amsterdam more transparent and to develop new solutions. The master class is based on the work of Nanda Piersma, special lecturer in Big Data in the city at the HvA (the Faculty of Technology and the Faculty of Digital Media and Creative Industry).
