City of Stockholm

Smart City challenge

More and more data is collected enabling cities to better optimize its resource flows. BUT, how do we collect and share data for maximum value?

The round table discussion will be about opportunities, experiences and insights regarding Internet of things to improve how cities work with monitoring sustainability targets and optimizing resource utilization. BUT, IoT projects are run in silos where data generally is locked in, resulting in several parallel infrastructures being built and limited use of the data collected.

In the Stockholm Royal Seaport a common IoT infrastructure and shared data are seen as important tools to reach the high ambitions for sustainable development. An IoT-platform will be tested to collect and share data and monitor the sustainability targets. Experiences will provide input for upscaling for the city of Stockholm.

  • What are the experiences of common data-platforms from other cities?
  • What are the risks? What are the opportunities?
  • What lessons can be learnt? What are the success stories so far?
  • What are the pitfalls to avoid?
  • How can we handle security and integrity related to data? Who owns the data and who decides how the data should be used and by whom?
  • Who should manage data in the long term?

About Stockholm Royal Seaport

The Stockholm Royal Seaport is one of the largest urban development areas in Sweden and even Europe. 12,000 new housing units and 35,000 workplaces are scheduled for completion by around 2030. Currently, 55 developers have been allocated sites for 5,100 housing units and more than 5,000 people have already moved in.
