Smart CityThe collaboration fits in with Venlo’s ambition to develop into a smart city.
Alderman Stephan Satijn: ‘As local government of a Smart City, we already implement multiple sources for all kinds of data on city, citizen, businesses and visitors. A regional hub like Venlo needs to develop policies in many different areas anyway. So local and regional data are already essential. With an Urban Data Centre we can apply a much more targeted approach.This will make the city of Venlo even better prepared for the future.’
