Data ecosystems – a new way of doing data together

With increasingly complex problems and a multitude of diverse user needs, we must join forces across sectors to find new ways of creating value.

A keynote presentation followed by a session with three short presentations will offer different views on data ecosystems followed by a facilitated dialogue with the audience and the presenters.

This session is arranged by Geoforum´s International Committee in collaboration with The Danish Agency for Data Supply and Infrastructure (SDFI).

The session is scheduled for Friday the 18th at 11:00 – 12:30 with a preceeding keynote starting at 10:15 – 11:00. The Keynote and the session will be in English.

Dr. ir. Bastiaan van Loenen, TU Delft will give a keynote on ‘Sustaibable open data ecosystems’. Subsequently, the session Data ecosystems – a new way of doing data togetherwill begin.

The session will consist of three short presentation (10 min) followed by a panel debate where Dr. van Loenen will participate.

The three presentations scheduled are:

  1. A private community as a part of the Basic Data Ecosystem by Peter Knudsen (SDFI) and Eli Skop (Atkins)
  2. Spatial Data Ecosystems – a new role for the public sector? by Sine Valbjørn Schlüter, SDFI
  3. Helsinki Smart City – data ecosystem by Anu Henriksson, City of Helsinki
