ESPRESSO Pilot Workshop
Date: 24th May 2016
Involved Partners: ISOCARP, Rotterdam
The meeting witnessed 14 participants, mainly from the Rotterdam municipality (account managers, head of department of Geoinformation, GIS experts, project manager for Smart Cities, initiator of „Digital City”), but also key stakeholders such as Future Insight. The main aim of the workshop was to establish a first discussion on the priorities of Rotterdam for being an ESPRESSO Pilot, starting with the key questions:
- What represents the concept of Smart Cities for Rotterdam?
- What are the principles of SC for the city, and which are the current achievement?
- What future plans and strategies need to be taken into account?
- What are the opportunities, barriers and future development plans in the key sectors of importance for the city?
- What case studies of interest can be considered for the ESPRESSO project?
Ideas for use cases and scenarios which they are considering / developing now: selflearning maintenance department alerts, water management via rain sensors (which they have installed) and reusing wastewater to warm up roads in winter (scenario to be expanded to warm up also buildings), wastebin „fullness level” sensors for optimization of wastemanagement vehicle routes, and other initiatives. A promising liaisoning with Rotterdam is the CityKeys project. They also referred us to the Open Agile Smart Cities Network (oascities.org/list-of-cities).
