In the Smart City, citizens, data and technology are the biggest enablers. That is why Amsterdam Smart City and Datalab joined forces to organize six ‘Smart Data, Smart City’ events in 2017. On November 2nd 2017, it is time for number 5 in these series! This one will also serve as a consultation meeting for the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area Circular Economy competition which aims to find solutions to close resource loops in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area at large (industrial) scale through the application of digital tools & data.

Smart Data, Smart City #5 – The role of digitization in the Circular Economy Transition

The Amsterdam Metropolitan Area (AMA) intends to grow into a fully circular (wasteless) region by 2050 and be the (international) leader in the field of circular business. The AMA therefore intends to use the power of innovation of both business as well as knowledge institutes in the AMA to accelerate the transition towards a circular economy. In 2015 the Amsterdam Economic Board, together with the governments of the AMA agreed upon a comprehensive Resources Transition Program for the region. Other important programs are the Amsterdam (Smart City) Circular Innovation Program and the MRA Program Transition to a Clean Economy.

To transition into a circular economy we need to change the way we view business. Currently, loss of (overall) value is not felt by the existing actors in the value chains, so the potential will only be harvested if and when new alliances are formed intra and inter organizational. New insights, data and transparency of this data are key.

We believe that digitization is the answer to the stagnation of the transition. People long for insights as they often don’t know where the potential earning reside because of lack of data. Therefore we assume that making this data available through digital solutions will give the transition the boost it needs.

The City of Amsterdam, on behalf of the AMA, considers to issue a competition to invite frontrunners, innovative players and visionaries to come up with ideas, a vision and a mars route towards this vision to boost circular activity in the region and far beyond.

The competition:

Offer solutions to close resource loops at large scale through the application of digital tools.

On November 2, 2017 we would like to further investigate the role of data and digital applications to close (industrial) waste cycles. We would like to hear your input and use this to optimize the completion. Join and discuss with us about this 'Circular & Digital AMA Competition’ in Datalab!

Program:
3.45 pm – Walk in
4.00 pm – Introduction by Amsterdam Smart City & Amsterdam Economic Board
4.30 pm – Interactive panel discussion led
5.30 pm – Drinks and laughter

Do you have ideas on how the digitization can play a role in the transition towards the circular economy? Come, discuss & participate!
