The age of big data and smart city technologies provides city governments with an unprecedent potential for data-driven decision-making. Helping cities to realise the potential of city data is a core commitment of the European Commission and embedded in the European policy framework.
Urban Innovative Actions and the work conducted in the context of the Urban Agenda for the EU by the Digital Transition and Culture/Cultural Heritage Partnerships have been translating this policy into action. A growing number of EU projects and actions have been launched in the framework of these two flagship EU initiatives which promote sustainable urban development.
