FOCUS ON Workshop: IoT Open Data Access

September 4, 2018

On 4 September, ERTICO is co-organising the workshop “IoT open data access to advance mobility in European cities: how can we achieve it?” in collaboration with the European Commission, AIOTI, Open & Agile Smart Cities and Big Data Value Association on the integration of Big Data and IoT platforms, which is leading to new data-driven business models and has the power to transform Europe’s industry.

Don’t miss the chance to learn more about mobility of the future, register now!

Companies are gaining impressive new  means to innovate and develop the next generation of products and services. Europe cannot afford to miss this opportunity. The EU’s emphasis on digital technology and digital platforms developed in Europe should rival that of other world regions so that it stays ahead of the curve.

To secure the EU’s leadership on Big Data and IoT, several challenges need to be addressed:

  • Technical challenges like interoperability, scalability and platform technologies
  • Awareness challenges across the industry, such as the benefits of data driven models
  • Policy challenges, particularly access to data

The workshop focuses on the IoT benefits for smart mobility. It includes insights about IoT solutions for smart mobility and emphasises the huge potential IoT has for developing new connected automated mobility (CAM) paradigms by focusing on the long-term target outcome and working backwards towards immediate actions needed.

The workshop underlines the importance of access to data in value creation. In the workshop, access to data will be assessed on the one hand from the angle of business agreements based on a win/win approach and private public/interest concepts and on the other hand from the angle of a technical semantics interoperability (via a common ontology shared with other sectors) as a converging framework. Existing and upcoming EU data policy and legislation will be explored to define the role of regulation and its impact on access to data. The requirements for harmonious integration of the mobility solutions in the interoperable ecosystem for cities will also be discussed.

Finally, the feasibility of an EU platform initiative for Open Data Access will be explored. This prospective EU platform will first aim to answer the needs of the demand side, as it is likely to be more pro-active than the supply side for open access to data.


All key sectors involved in the Big Data and Mobility value chain will be invited to attend, including but not limited to:

  • Telecoms: MNOs, manufacturers, Cloud platforms and solutions’ developers and providers
  • Mobility solution and platform developers, Mobility service operators, convergent companies covering several sectors
  • Data Protection agencies – relevant public authorities
  • Stakeholder associations
