Master Class 9: Data & Privacy in Smart Cities

Cities and municipalities have access to a variety of data concerning their buildings, budgets, citizens, etc. Moreover, new possibilities to gather data emerge within a smart city context. How can cities and municipalities transparently gather, process, visualize and report these data in line with relevant privacy principles and regulations such as the General Data Protection Regulation?

During this master class organized by the VUB Chair on Smart Cities, Rob Heyman and Nils Walravens will discuss what the possibilities are for those who want to set up city campaigns or technological solutions that involve data collection and how they can consider privacy from the very beginning. Other presentations planned include a presentation from a legal perspective and a practical case.
