How do we shape the digital (r)evolution of Ghent?
A genuine smart city starts from its proper DNA, the knowledge of the city, the society and the stakeholders
Data, and open data in particular, yield various information flows and allow us to conduct analyses, thus generating knowledge
Technology is not a goal in itself, but is an ‘enabler’ in function of solutions for social challenges
By means of open innovation, open data and open participation, Ghent is preparing itself for the future
Politics and administration have to permanently reinvent themselves to be capable of shaping the city of the future
