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 β€œThe 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 β€œTada, Clarity about Dataβ€œ, created in partnership with local businesses, academia, and residents, to highlight concepts such as inclusion, transparency, and ethical data use.
