COOCK Open City Workshop: Open City and Its Citizens

9 February 2021 @ 13:00 15:00 CET

This webinar is organized in the context of the Coock ‘Open City’ Project and deals with the topic of involving citizens in an open city. Not only can citizens provide local governments with necessary data to tackle certain challenges through citizen science projects, the government from its side can open up its data for re-use to develop certain solutions by its citizens. This raises certain questions: How can citizens be engaged in citizen science projects? How can collected data be made available towards citizens and companies? How can data then be re-used by citizens and companies? During this webinar we will answer these questions.
