Citizen data engagement
We will leverage data to find solutions to city issues, using existing and near-term initiatives such as REPLICATE. We will build the capacity of organisations and citizens to use data to shape projects and achieve ‘smart’ city outcomes. REPLICATE (REnaissance of Places with Innovative Citizenship And Technologies) is a €25 million Smart city ‘Lighthouse’ project. In Bristol, it is employing digital technology to explore the impact of integrating smart energy and smart transport interventions in the neighbourhood of Easton. Bristol is a city within the URBACT Resilient Europe network which aims to share experiences on resilience and sustainability across the network. Bringing these two projects together will enable Bristol to develop a real neighbourhood focus to data engagement.
