Thursday 30 April, 3 PM (CET)
Thursday 30 April we went on an Online Mission to Brussels (Belgium) for a talk with guest speakers Mr Eddy Hartog, Head of Unit Smart Mobility and Living at European Commission. All over Europe cities are transforming to a smart city, but how can we collaborate between cities and the EU to make interoperable smart cities? Citizens-centric communities, cities where our technical sovereignty is warranted and where we have control on technique and our data. Mrs Fatma Koser Kaya, vice-mayor of the city of Amersfoort opened the meeting. The city of Amersfoort was among the first municipalities to sign the Declaration and are strong believers of working together on smart cities in European context.
