Uraia - Citizenship Series on smart technologies - Big Data in cities

The Brussels Region is hosting the annual meeting of the URAIA network in 2018

13 December 2017

Delegates from more than 60 cities and their partners around the world will gather in Brussels, in the 2nd quarter of 2018, to debate the theme “Big data in cities”. The Brussels Region has been chosen to host this meeting at the initiative of the BRIC.

A hundred international participants are expected to attend. They will discuss, debate and promote their experience on using big data for urban management and, in particular, municipal finance.

Uraia is a discussion platform created in 2014 by UN-Habitat and FMDV (International alliance of local and regional governments) aimed at promoting the emergence and the dissemination of urban solutions in favour of active citizenship. Uraia provides support to local governments with using technologies and smart solutions for urban management.

Every year, the platform brings together its members for an annual meeting. In September 2017, URAIA launched a call for organising its annual meeting in 2018. The Brussels Regional Informatics Center, with Brussels International’s support, responded by proposing the Brussels-Capital Region to host this meeting. Its proposal was accepted.
