Adri Wischmann, Dutch Innovation Café - Smart Cities, Sofia 2017
First edition of the Dutch Innovation Café in Sofia will focus on exchange of best practices, establish connections between the different stakeholders involved in the concept of Smart City, the use of IoT and innovations to contribute to the Smart City and seek ways to develop startup businesses into commercial frontrunners.

Emmen, The Netherlands (10km from German border)
Worldpopulation is growing
at a stagering speed!
1800 3 %
We are changing from ‘hunter/gatherers’ to an ‘urban species’.
Every year more people are settling in cities around the world.
Sofia: 1.3 million people live in the city 2.3 million live in Metropolitan Area
Amsterdam : 0.8 million people live in the city 2.3 million live in Metropolitan Area
Amsterdam Smart City
740+ Years old, 165 Grachten (100km canals), 1200 Bridges
812000 Citizens, 881000 Bicycles (63% citizens use a bike every day)
17.620.000 visitors per year
What is a “Smart City”?
A developed urban area that creates sustainable economic development
and high quality of life by excelling in multiple key areas; economy,
mobility, environment, people, living, and government.
Excelling in these key areas can be done so through strong human capital,
social capital, and/or ICT infrastructure.
A smart city is a designation given to a city that incorporates information
and communication technologies (ICT) to enhance the quality and
performance of urban services such as energy, transportation and utilities
in order to reduce resource consumption, wastage and overall costs.
The overarching aim of a smart city is to enhance the quality of living
for its citizens through smart technology.
Amsterdam Smart City (ASC) is your innovation platform for a futureproof city!
ASC is constantly challenging businesses, residents, the municipality and
knowledge institutions to test innovative ideas & solutions for urban issues.
This contributes to the liveability of the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area,
promotes sustainable economic growth and helps develop new markets.
Amsterdam has a big parking-problem with narrow streets and many canals
(even citizens have to wait 10 years for a parking-permit in the centre)
30% of all cars driving in Amsterdam are looking for a parking-spot.
(imagine the waste in time, the stress, the fuel and the polution we could save ourselves)
How does Amsterdam Smart City work?
- Collective approach: ASC – Partners – Innovation
- Central position Citizens
- Circular /Efficient use of resources
- Sharing/spreading Knowledge
- Economic viability
Improving efficiency en lowering cost
WAS the big engine behind Smart Cities
Improving quality of life and health for
the citizens is the main goal!
and nearly 100 Project-partners...
Amsterdam Economic Board
Tackling urban challenges through collaboration between governmental agencies,
research institutions and the trade and industry sector.
- CEO’s of large companies
- University leaders
- Mayor and Aldermen
Together formulate strategy for the future of Amsterdam Metropolitan Area
5 Metropolitan Challenges:
- Circular Economy
- Digital Connectivity
- Talent (finding, keeping and making use of..)
Smart Citizen Platform
Smart Citizen is a platform to generate participatory processes of people in the citie
Connecting data, people and knowledge, the objective of the platform is to serve
as a node for building productive and open indicators, and distributed tools,
and thereafter the collective construction of the city for its own inhabitants.
The City of Amsterdam has several concrete initiatives itselve:
City of Amsterdam: Datalab
A workshop, knowledge centre and open stage for civil servants, partners
and inhabitants interested in data in Amsterdam.
City of Amsterdam: Chief Technology Office
The CTO office of the Municipality of Amsterdam collaborates with all
departments from the municipality to make innovation happen in the city.
They work on themes, such as: e-health, circular economy, smart mobility,
sharing economy, cooperation with start-ups and innovative procurement.
City of Amsterdam: Amsterdam Elektrisch
Amsterdam electric stimulates frequent business drivers (such as taxis and vans)
to switch to electric vehicles and further expands the network of public charging
The aim is to give electric transport a strong stimulus.
After all, electric transport is cleaner, quieter and more economical.
City of Amsterdam: Amsterdam In Business
Amsterdam inbusiness assists foreign companies with the establishment and
expansion of their activities in the Netherlands.
City of Amsterdam: Department of Planning and Sustainability
The work of the City of Amsterdam's department of Planning and Sustainability
integrates the higher levels of regional and long term planning into to the details
of public space design. We search for new approaches and stimulate bottom up
processes to integrate solutions in the field of urbanisation, mobility
and water management in multidisciplinary teams.
City of Amsterdam: GGD Amsterdam
Amsterdam Health Organisation for health care like vaccinations.
You simply HAVE TO!
But you need room to manouver
... the rules and regulations!
Festivals are excellent testinggrounds for Smart City innovations..
Events with hundreds to ten-thousands of people that last for a few days
then disappear and iterate for the next version.
Amsterdam ArenA is a LivingLab Innovationcentre
equipped with thousands of sensors and innovations
Making it possible to experiment with buildings, light,
environment, people (crowds) at sportevents,
33500 m2 office space
3900 m2 event space
1600 m2 rooftop park
Smart Cities = Connected Cities
Sensors are the eyes and ears of a (smart) system
Sensors create measument-values
which are a virtual representation of what is happening (in the city)
Only by measuring and comparing we can see what/how
the city is doing.. react and improve upon it!
Data is the fuel that powers a Smartcity-engine..
Just a few simple examples (out of thousands):
For traffic congestion
-Redirecting traffic: saving fuel, improving air-quality
-Emergency vehicle redirection saving lives
-Improving public transport situation
-Improving planning (more efficient use of infrastructure)
Monitoring parkingspaces (and redirecting cars so they will find their
Monitoring ‘customer-traffic’ in shops & restaurants
Or to adapt road-lighting: Adaptive (to save energy), dynamic (depending
on who walks by: elderly need more light), Emergencies (guiding
Connectivity requires infrastructure
Sensors are getting cheaper by the day
but connectivity is relativly expensive.
Multiply that by thousands of sensors..
Next to commercial solutions from Telco’s with cell-towers
(3G, 4G, 5G, Narrow Band)
There now is an open crowdsourced solution where
IoT-data can be transported: Lora
Lora – Low Power, Long Range (Low Bandwidth)
Making it possible to
communicate small datapackets
from low power devices
(3-5 years battery-life)
over a distance of 10-15km
(inner city 1-2km)
1 gateway can handle up to
10.000 nodes (sensors)
The Things Network (TTN)
LoraWAN-Network can be used without Wifi-password,
no subscription, zero setupcosts
Because the reach is very high and the cost of the equipment is low,
covering an entire city can be done with a small investment.
The city of Amsterdam was covered with only 10 gateways at
the cost of 1200 dollars each.
Crowdsourced in 300+ Cities in 80 countries HQ Amsterdam
Citizens and companies are buying gateways
with their own money.. to make the city smart!
Hackathons/Creathons speed up innovations for Smart Cities
Creative people with a limited amount of time
(30 hours) finding solutions, inventing new
products, starting new companies.
“Don’t tell me the sky is the limit..
when there are footsteps on the moon”
In developing the cities of the future
the only boundary we will encounter
is our lack of imagination.
