Data Days: Citadel pilots results

  1. 1. Citadel…on the Move Pilot City Experiences February 18, 2014 Data Days
  2. 2. What is Citadel? A project co-funded by the European Commission that aims to: • Make it easy for cities to publish Open Data • Make it easy for citizens to use data • Create a common European Open Data ecosystem
  3. 3. How? Publish data in a common format • Using available standards • Provide and source tools to transform data from (and to) various formats
  4. 4. How? Provide template applications that consume the data • Tailored to important domains for each of the pilot cities
  5. 5. A pilot project
  6. 6. Citizen engagement in the development of smart city applications Applying the Living Lab approach Carina Veeckman Researcher iMinds-SMIT-VUB carina.veeckman@iminds.be
  7. 7. How SMART is your city?
  8. 8. Sensors networks 4G wireless internet Smart grids Data management QR codes on buildings Location-based applications RFID Smart transportation Smart homes Open government data Real-time information
  9. 9. What is YOUR opinion?
  10. 10. Smart Cities? “Stupid mayors are putting the wrong things at the heart of smart cities” (The Guardian, 26th November 2013) “Without engaging citizens about the role of technology in their cities and its impact on the way in which they will travel, live, eat, play and study, the Smart City vision will fail. If cities truly want to gain the benefits of technologies in society, then they need to start a discussion with their citizens about how this technology might impact their lives” (FutureEverything, 2013) “Smart city solutions must start with the city, not the smart” (Belissent, 2010)
  11. 11. Living Labs • Roots in open innovation and user innovation • “a virtual reality or a physical region in which different stakeholders form public-private-people partnerships of public agencies, firms, universities, and users collaborate to create, prototype, validate, and test new technologies, services, products, and systems in real-life context” (Westerlund & Leminen, 2011) • Other characteristics: • Ecosystem approach • The user as co-producer • Iterative process between developers and living lab users
  12. 12. The Living lab approach Closed User Group Open User Group • Cycle I • Cycle II • Min 50 • Cycle I • Cycle II • Min 10 • • • • Limited amount of users Up-skilling and inclusion of citizen developers Testing initial functionality and usability First feedback capturing on user experience and • • Larger user base • Citizens, citizen developers, professional developers, SME’s,… Proof-of-concept phase • Collaboration with other cities in Europe • Min 100 Comparing the solutions cross-border
  13. 13. The Living lab approach Closed user Group Cycle I Cycle II (e.g. interviews) (e.g. focus group) Evaluation Testing Design Implementation Evaluation Testing
  14. 14. The Living lab approach Living lab testing cycles in four cities Common deployment strategy Pilot specific elements Number of phases User recruitment and management Number of test cycles in each phase for iteration Data (open data, sensor data) User numbers Thematic focus (tourism versus transport) Data capture methodologies Mobile template applications

  22. 22. Pilot Experience: Gent • Recommendations for new cities • Display value of open data to policy makers quickly • Open up everything (even bad data) to connect with community • Set up initiatives to connect with and learn from developers (such as talks or workshops) • Appoint a responsible for open data
  23. 23. Athens Ira Giannakoudaki DAEM, City of Athens i.giannakoudaki@daem.gr
  24. 24. Pilot Experience: Athens (1/6) • Expectations  Showcase the added value of open data in city services provision  Provide concrete guidance in opening up data and in drawing the actual open data strategy in Athens  Improve citizen participation in services co-creation through the LL approach  Bring together stakeholders in the open data governance group  Explore the Athens Open Living Lab potential  Provide citizens and visitors with innovative services that improve everyday life
  25. 25. Pilot Experience: Athens (2/6) • 2nd Period Achievements  Worked on the city specific parking template variation (on-street parking dataset)  Completed Closed user group 2 and Open user group 1 Data  Addressed a wider group of participants provide rs  First services ideas and mock-ups in place Open  Tested and used the converter Athens  Promoted and used the AGT tool Living Lab Technolo gy Users  Promoted and contributed to the ODGG survey providers  Established the official Athens Open Living Lab  Raised awareness through on and off line activities
  26. 26. Pilot Experience: Athens (3/6) • 2nd Period Achievements Closed User Group 2: interviews and focus group> 4 citizen developers and important feedback Open User Group 1: design workshop on mobility (7) and surveys (26)->7 scenarios, 4 service ideas and mock-ups Converter->5 new datasets AGThttp://demos.citadelonthemove.e u/appgenerator/index.php?uid=A27C0 0DE-18C3-F702-1689-90850167DABE Sammos 2013 Summit Athens event,28/3/2013 Design Workshop
  27. 27. Pilot Experience: Athens (4/6) • Challenges  Data: finding datasets  Decision-making: political decision on opening up data/ no single local platform dedicated to that-> first decision to the Open Data Strategy roadmap in Athens  Real-time data: parking sensor deployment-no access to free real-time environmental data  Social innovation: attracting and continuously stimulating a critical mass of citizens to create apps
  28. 28. Pilot Experience: Athens (5/6) • Goals for final year  Improve and enrich datasets  Test the Athens parking template variation (on-street parking)  Deploy sensor data (if possible)  Real-time environmental data  Open User Group 2  Engage and work with Associate Cities (2)
  29. 29. Pilot Experience: Athens (6/6) • Recommendations for new cities and lessons learned  Very important to focus on making the most of the existing datasets  User engagement happens gradually  The open data movement is here but strategies are missing  Professional developers consider our tools too easy to work with and would rather create applications themselves they way they normally do  Citizen-developers are more open in using our templates but when without skills still tend to confuse them with apps ready to use
  30. 30. Manchester John Keys MDDA, City of Manchester j.keys@manchesterdda.com
  31. 31.
