  9. 9. BOTTOM LINE
  10. 10. Bottom line of Smart Flanders Expectations around IoT and Smart Cities in general remain very high, but the potential real-life impact and return are still hard to grasp or unclear. Which urban challenges can we start tackling in a better way today, by bringing together city data in smarter ways and making them available for reuse? (linked & open)? Based on this exercise, which new opportunities do we identify for more innovative, different or other ways of collecting, processing and opening data?
  11. 11. WHY OPEN DATA?
  12. 12. Why open data? Transport for London publishes real-time open data 13.000 registered developers, 600 apps Approx 500 people directly employed 42% of Londeners use a service based on TfL data Yearly estimated economic benefit and savings of £130 milio http://content.tfl.gov.uk/deloitte-report-tfl-open-data.pdf

  14. 14. Why open data? Because you have to… Decreet Hergebruik van Overheidsinformatie (2007) According to the definition of ‘bestuursdocumenten’ in the Decreet Openbaarheid van Bestuur (2004) Translation of the European Directive on Public Sector Information (PSI) in which Flanders was a frontrunner in Europe (and Belgium) No privacy-sensitive or personal data

  17. 17. Occupancy individual parkings
  18. 18. Compare occupancy over time
  19. 19. Importance of this approach to data publishing Not this visualisation, however: ● Automation ● Reuse (already by one startup and research) ● Scalability and cost for cities ● Data-based policy (internal reuse) ● Transparency
  20. 20. PRINCIPLES
  21. 21. Core principles of Smart Flanders Support programme, communications channel, knowledge and interaction platform Focus on real-time open data and shared reference architectures Cooperation between cities and actors from the quadruple helix Implementation-driven Internationally networked Lighthouse model for smaller cities (13 centre cities andVGC Brussels)
  22. 22. PROJECT STRUCTURE
  23. 23. Threefold project structure 1. Open and Agile Smart Flanders: Maturity Check Maturity check and ‘Smart Portrait’ Open Data Charter 2. Smart Flanders Data Pilots: Reality Check 1 - 2 data pilots per year to tackle a shared urban challenge 1. Smart Flanders Testbed: Conformity Check Test and validation in a real-life environment Partners: imec, 13 centre cities and VGC, ABB, Kenniscentrum, AIV, Facilitair Bedrijf, cabinets Homans, Muyters, Weyts, user group
  24. 24. WHAT CAN CITIES EXPECT FROM SMART FLANDERS?
  25. 25. Smart Flanders Offer I Practices and tools for cost efficient data publication Support in defining and setting up data pilots with societal impact Stimulating data reuse with innovation as the goal Working towards better inter- and intragovernmental data sharing Support in avoiding vendor lock-in
  26. 26. Smart Flanders Offer II Building bridges to existing initiatives Building on available solutions and technologies Gathering and translating international insights Support participation in (inter)national projects, pilots and so on Support matchmaking with the market where possible

  30. 30. OPEN DATA CHARTER
  31. 31. Open Data Charter https://smart.flanders.be/open-data-charter Goal: establish a progressive vision and ambition, stimulate reuse Strategic and technical principles on open data publishing Point of reference for cities, but open to broader support Co-created with the cities for 3 types of data
  32. 32. Open Data Charter: Principles Stimulate maximum reuse Accurate metadata Web as publication platform Open licences Sharing and coooperation between governments Dialogue and interaction with quadruple helic and reusers Lowest possible delay between measurement and publication + historical data Attention for these principles in procurement, contracts, concessions etc. To be published on https://smart.flanders.be/open-data-charter when finalised
  33. 33. CONCLUSION
  34. 34. Conclusion Complex challenges can be tackled in the relative short term Learning by doing works, but raises understandable questions Not obstacles, but opportunities Keep focus on return for the cities, with attention for the whole ecosystem
