Let data work for our cities!

On 12 and 13 May 2022, the fourth meeting of the CSPF (Cities for Sustainable Public Finances) network took place. This fourth meeting was dedicated to new and disruptive technologies, such as artificial intelligence, its application to smart cities and the role of data in these projects. With the participants of this meeting, a workshop was held on this theme to determine together a top 10 of points of attention that help to increase the chance of success of such projects. A good exchange of data is an important precondition for this. In this article we explain some initiatives to clarify the importance of data interoperability and also briefly outline the results of the workshop.

The KDZ - Centre for Public Administration Research is a competence centre and knowledge platform for public management Consulting, European Governance & Urban policy, public finance and federalism and training.

We want a sustainable modernization of the public sector and, as a non-profit organisation, we offer research, advice and training for public administration.
