In September 2019 we visited imec at their office in Antwerp (Belgium) with a group of 30 alderman and their strategic advisors from the Netherlands, to see how digital twins and data-driven policy making changes the way decisions are being made. We continue our exploration in the Future City project Realtime Omgevingsbeleid (Real-time Environmental Policy). Because we belief data insight can lead to better informed decisions and thus to better policy.

At imec, the Belgium-based R&D and innovation hub, they work on Air Quality IoT Testbeds. Where a multi-disciplinary team of researchers and engineers pushing innovation in sensor technology, wireless sensor networks, and algorithms, to enable fine-grained, precise and cost-effective air quality monitoring in smart cities and buildings.

Also have a look at the Snifferbike-project, where bikes monitor the air quality.
