Open Data Themes

Among the wide range of developments in the field of Open Data, three themes were extracted to explore:

Smart City (mobility, energy, health)

Within these themes we carried on with technical standards, handy portals, Linked Open Data, Big Data, etc.


The one-day conference offered a full scope which was recessed in the parallel sessions. Moreover, there were three special Keynotes featured by Carlo van de Weijer (TomTom) and Arjan El Fassed (OpenEstate Foundation).

In the attractive setting of the Eindhoven City Hall not only an excellent lunch but also some side-events were organized to make it useful and enjoyable.
