Amsterdam City

Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands, will soon celebrate its 750th anniversary. The city represents a great historical richness and is one of the most important Smart Cities in the world. The current city government developed an ambitious policy framework in 2018 entitled “The Digital City,” which includes proposals on data minimization, openness by default, privacy by design, and a ban on Wi-Fi tracking. In addition to this, the city is also implementing the participatory manifest “Tada, Clarity about Data“, created in partnership with local businesses, academia, and residents, to highlight concepts such as inclusion, transparency, and ethical data use.
