Governing Urban Data

Joint Innovation Program for Digital City Leaders

Cities across Europe need to manage the digital transformation in order to achieve sustainable growth, provide better services to their citizens and spend their money more wisely. The management of data is the key for the digital trans formation of our cities. Yet, this is a completely new challenge for public authorities and city administrations – all cities need to find their way through a complex transition process that involves policies, organizations, hardware, software, skills and financing models.


Fraunhofer invites CDOs , CIOs and practitioners of the digital urban trans formation to join a moderated dialogue platform on the governance of urban data

in order to facilitate the daily work of each of them. Expert contributions and the dialogue with likeminded colleagues from across Europe help take better decisions, apply the right tools and speak with a strong voice to national and EU policymakers and industry.

The kick-off of the joint project will take place on 4./5. April 2019 as part of the Morgenstadt Conference in Leipzig
