Featured image

Demand for knowledge and collaboration is greater than ever as cities look for innovative solutions and best practices to respond to the Covid-19 crisis. This is why Amsterdam Smart City is adapting to the corona crisis and the "new normal" by bringing its Knowledge Exchange programs online.

Any interested party, irrespective of their location, can now book one of three standard Knowledge Exchange programs hosted online, via the Zoom platform:

  • Smart City Consultation Session (45 min): This interactive session gives participants the opportunity to ask all of your questions about the Amsterdam Smart City program and projects.
  • Introduction to Amsterdam Smart City (1.5hr): This session shares the development and evolution of Amsterdam Smart City with a focus on governance, key projects and lessons learned since its inception in 2009.
  • Smart City Deep Dive (2.5hr): Dive deeper into one of four societal transitions central to the Amsterdam Smart City program: mobility, energy, circularity economy, or digital city. This session includes presentations and discussions with two experts and focuses on best practices and more than a decade of lessons learned from Amsterdam’s innovation ecosystem.

Launching New Program: Smart City Exchange

In response to demand for exchanging best practices, we are also launching a new “Smart City Exchange” to support cities and organizations with their urban innovation ambitions. During these sessions Amsterdam Smart City shares best practices and lessons learned from Amsterdam’s innovation ecosystem on a specific topic, for example mobility, energy of community-driven initiatives. In exchange we would like to hear from your city or organization’s experience and best practices on the same topic. In this way we create mutually beneficial Smart City Exchange!
