Overview

We would like to invite you to the "Unblock the city" online seminar and share our insights on digital transformation in the public sector based on real hands on experiences. During this seminar we will take you into the world of city logistics and dynamic policy making. To enable this we'll use a funnel approach. We'll start with sharing imecs vision on the future of smart cities & city logistics. Next we're proud to welcome Peter Zilgalvis, who'll share his insights from his experience working on Digital Transformation at the European Commission.  In a next session we'll inspire you with the pilot projects that are being elaborated in the Token project. From here we take things more locally. Vlaams Instituut voor de Logistiek (VIL), knowledge hub and representing the Flemish logistics sector, will talk about the paradox in logistics policy making and short supply chain. We finalise with a deep dive in the context of the City of Leuven. Here we talk about the local needs and how we plan to address them within the framework of the Token project.

Looking forward having you at our webinar!

Background

The TOKEN ecosystem will ease up the adoption of such technologies by providing public administrations with “Public Service Ready” components and prove its added value via replicable Pioneer Use Cases. 

Digital transformation within governments is gaining momentum.

Governments see that the renewal of their services requires increased cooperation between various internal departments, but increasingly also external parties. However, the current digital systems do not always provide the necessary trust or are not capable of doing so at all.

Very often this translates into a feeling of increased administration and complex procedures on the part of the parties involved. In 2018, 21 European member states signed the European Blockchain Partnership (EBP), with which they stated their intention to review their operation. Blockchain is a technology that promotes trust among users and enables them to share information & transactions in a secure and verifiable manner. The TOKEN project is a research project that fits within this framework.

In this webinar, you will learn how public authorities, and specifically cities & municipalities, can use DLTs to improve their processes and solve issues related to trust, transparency and privacy.

The webinar takes you at cruising speed around the progress made, ambitions of the project and introduces you to the four applications.

- Learn about which applications are being developed within the Token project:

  • Management of public funding (tendering)  
  • Transparent management of public accounts 
  • Dynamic access to the city & city logistics 
  • Increased trust within an (urban) data marketplace 

- Learn how the city of Leuven looks at (last mile) urban logistics and how they plan to promote local trade and sustainable modes of transport.

- Learn about the City of Things program, imec is researching to see how technology can be used to make our cities more livable.
