Our knowledge society forum supports cities to ensure that all citizens can have access to ICTs and participate in the information and knowledge society and helps public administrations to make the most of the rapid development of new technologies


The rapid development and increasing use of information and communications technologies (ICTs) has transformed our societies and economies, how we do business and communicate with each other, and how we work and learn.

 

New technologies are also transforming public administration at all levels, as citizens are learning to expect easy access to realtime information and reliable online services.

 

 

 

2014 priorities

·         Citizens: Smart Citizens

Smart citizens encompass the entire human aspect of ICT. Starting with the personal opportunities, access and skills necessary to use ICT and taking advantage of the various possibilities the digital world creates.

 

·         Content: Co-creation for innovation, transparency and business

Smart cities is a great area to strengthen cities cooperation with researchers & universities and keep our links with Living Labs. Cities are often only viewed as testbeds becoming more important as driver of the local economy or attraction for inward investment. But cities are also enablers, giving oxygen to co-creation initiatives by developing and supporting them. The basis of all these possibilities is content.

 

·         Technical: IT development for smart governance

Technical ICT issues and requirements are also necessary basis and invaluable for exchanges of best practices across cities.
