Smart Data, Smart City #1 - Citizens & Data

Featured image

What role should data play in the life of citizens? How can we involve the citizen in the development of a smart city? Which type of smart city projects are suitable for citizens to play a role in? How important is it for companies to incorporate the citizen?

Citizens can be involved in the development of the city in a number of ways. In some initiatives citizens are very empowered, in other initiatives they are involved, but less aware. Two keynotes will elaborate on the roles citizens can play in smart city projects, both from a different perspective. Join us at Datalab at 23 March!
