Coock Open City First Workshop: Smart towards a high-quality living environment, a pioneering role for Flanders

12 January 2021 @ 13:00 17:00 CET

Learn more about the newly launched Coock Open City project during this first workshop!

“Open city – Knowledge transfer with regard to unlocking standards and best practices for one open ‘datafied’ society within the domain of environmental factors (air quality, sound, water, light, electromagnetic radiation, etc.) as the basis for innovation value models.”

The aim of the series of workshops is to unite knowledge institutions, policymakers and companies in order to make Flanders a model region in the field of smart monitoring and management of the living environment. A healthy living environment is perceived as pleasant, invites healthy behavior and causes the lowest possible pressure on health. Within the Coock project, the emphasis is on sound, air and electromagnetic radiation. In addition to monitoring the situation and impact on residents and users, a smart policy also requires a link with the pressure on this living environment. Traffic is important, for example, but it is certainly not the only driving force.

Topics of this first workshop in the series:

• From data to knowledge and prediction: ex. trend analysis; interpolation between measurements
• Data quality of living environment: ex. how to deal with a diversity of data; exchange of information between initiatives
• New sensors in a smart city context and their integration: ex. personal exposure monitoring

Agenda (4h online event):

• Ongoing policy initiatives (introduced by government agencies)
• Introduction of topics Noise, Electromagnetic, Air quality – followed by workshop with stakeholders
• Introduction to data collection, modeling, knowledge extraction – followed by workshop with stakeholders
