Speaking opportunity at event 'How to Get People to Actually Use Contact Tracing Apps' - 3rd of September

The wait is almost over. On the 1st of September, the Netherlands will launch its own contact tracing app to combat COVID-19. In a few weeks time, all Dutch people will be able to use the Coronamelder. But, are people really waiting for this app? Usage is voluntary, however, it is often said that 60% of the population should use the app to ensure effectiveness. Will 60% of the Dutch install an app? What can the government and other stakeholders do to ensure high rates of adoption? And what lessons can we learn from other countries already using contact-tracing apps? Join the international exchange!

Amsterdam Smart City is organizing a Data Dilemmas event on this topic on the 3rd of September! More information can be found here: https://amsterdamsmartcity.com/events/how-to-get-people-to-actually-use-contact-tracing

Have you been involved in the development, testing or roll-out of a contact-tracing app for covid-19 and would you like to share you experience as a user or professional? Get in touch with Nancy via nancy@amsterdamsmartcity.com with a short explanation on how you would like to contribute to the discussion!

Master's thesis: Looking for interviewees involved in Schoonschip project

Greetings everyone, my name is Rhea and i am pursuing my master's in Urban Management and Development.
I am currently writing my thesis on decentralised smart energy systems accelerating neighbourhood circularity (through the case of Schoonschip, Amsterdam), aiming for an integrated result in the energy and circularity transition as well as to fill the gap in literature about neighbourhood circularity.
Consequently, I am looking to interview people who were involved in the Schoonschip project, including experts, project developers, community members, municipality etc. The interview would be focusing on conditions such as technological, economic, institutional, socio-cultural and environmental (depending on the interviewee's background) associated with the development of Schoonschip and its energy systems. Your valuable insights will be fully acknowledged in the final publication.

Kindly contact me if you are willing to contribute to my research or if you know someone who could help me out. I would be grateful! Thanks in advance!

wireless audio systems - leisure social distanciation

Hi! I'm in charge of the animation of the guided tour industry in Brussels. The issue is : speaking loud & audible with a mask is not ideal for tours even if you are 6 (usually a guided tour is up to 25 people). I was wondering if you heard about initiatives regarding social distancing between transmitter and receivers, in the context of tour guides (app for wireless audio systems; touchless materials, whispers-audio-systems,...)? In the context of the crisis, I think such technology could be used for many other citizen activity (teacher in a classroom, public (physical) presentation,...).

Vote for Johnny Cashew @Kraak de Crisis

Did you know that your cashew nuts travel 12.500 km more than is required before it hits the shelves in your supermarket? Johnny Cashew sources cashew nuts directly from Africa (Tanzania, to be precise). Our nuts ensure a good price for the farmers, reduced food miles for transport and from the profit we make we plant cashew trees in Tanzania.
Out nuts taste good, look good and do good!
We look for your support to vote for us at Kraak de Crisis, an initiative that supports new ideas to fight the crisis.

With your vote we can get free advice from PWC and, above all, 25.000 euros to kick off!

Looking for interviewees for Master thesis project.

Hi all! I am Siddharth, a master student at the AMS Institute. For my thesis, I am researching how citizen engagement can contribute to evaluation/assessment of smart city and smart city projects with respect to quality of life. Quality of life is a basic compnent of the smart city but evaluation for quality of life does not happen successfully. How can citizen engagement fill the gap in assessing the smart city and smart projects for quality of life?
If you are a citizen, researcher, project developer, innovator or public official who has any insights or interest in this topic and would like to contribute to my research project please do contact me. I look forward to talking to you!

Expert needed for Interview Bachelor Thesis

Dear members,

My name is Frank and I am a student at the University of Amsterdam.
At the moment, I am working on my thesis for the bachelor Social Geography and Urban Planning at the University of Amsterdam. My research is about the influence of electric cars on urban sprawl. The focus of my research will be on urban sprawl and the increase in automotive mobility and in the increase in efficiency of fuel consumption (both for electric cars and gasoline cars). For this, we have to do some fieldwork and for my thesis I have chosen to do in-depth-interviews.

Are you, or are there in your team people, interested in helping me do my research? Because of the current situation around the corona-virus, the interviews will take place in a different form, for example through Zoom or Skype. These interviews can be conducted in English or Dutch.

Thank you in advance and kind regards,

It is a fact that smart technologies are here and governments usage of them is an inevitable future and if we wish for them to use these technologies responsibly then we must first ourselves must know how they should be used.

Hoe heb jij de facilitaire logistiek georganiseerd voor jouw bedrijf, Universiteit, Ziekenhuis of cultuurinstelling?

Ik ben vooral nieuwsgierig; waar worden jullie nou blij van, waar lopen jullie tegenaan en welke ontwikkelingen maken jullie door?

Ben(of ken) jij de manager inkoop, duurzaamheid, strategie? Of hou jij je op een ander wijze bezig met het reilen en zeilen van (duurzame) facilitaire logistiek? En kun je daar gepassioneerd over vertellen? PostNL Stadslogistiek wil de leefwereld van groot zakelijke ontvangers graag nog beter begrijpen!

Interest in joining a smart energy project

Hello all,
I am really eager to get some experience and expand my knowledge in everything involving smart grids, e-mobility (V2G) and low-temperature district heating. From June onwards, I am available to join an exciting and innovative project which I could collaborate with you on!
At this moment, I am in my second semester at Hanze UAS taking the master in Sustainable Energy and I am requesting any input from you all regarding the possibilities of an internship/master thesis host. I have been working on (including right at this moment) an innovative V2G proposal for a car sharing service in Alkmaar, a domestic hydrogen heating business proposal in Hoogeveen and a low-temp district heating project in Meerstad.

Looking forward to hearing from you, fellow collaborator!

Thinking Tech Partner Needed!

Hello community!
Me and 2 colleagues are structuring a circular business here in the Netherlands and we are looking for a tech partner to help us with the creation of an app and develop a communication system that will improve logistics for transportation, all this to boost circularity in our business model. The tech solution we build together will be part of a circular chain project that we will present for governments.
I am more than happy to discuss this further with whoever is interested :)
