Kick-off event BOLD Cities 2019-2024 strategy

The Leiden-Delft-Erasmus Centre for BOLD Cities has recently submitted its strategy for the 2019-2024 period and will continue to align researchers from various disciplines in the LDE universities in projects that regard urban (big) data. Opportunities offered by “big data” bring huge changes to the physical and social urban environment. The Centre's mission is to go from ‘BOLD to SHARED cities', reflecting the overall aim to work towards an inclusive smart city for citizens and civil servants. The 2019-2024 strategy plan will be introduced during this BOLD Cities symposium on privacy and cybersecurity lessons for SHARED cities.
