Data-enabled circular cities: Applications and future directions
23 February 2022, 12:00 - 13:00
In this webinar, experts and practitioners from the European REFLOW project – which aims at co-creating and testing regenerative solutions at business, governance, and citizen levels to create a resilient circular economy – will introduce the set of IT solutions that have been developed and implemented in six European pilot cities, and discuss how to scale up a data-enabled circular transition to other European cities.
Pairing the digital revolution with the principles of a Circular Economy (CE) has the potential to radically transform our urban landscape and its relationship to materials and finite resources. Digital product passports, IoT, AI solutions for distributed value chains, etc. are just a number of digital applications currently emerging and reshaping how resources flow within cities. Digital technology is rapidly becoming a key enabler for unlocking the value from Circular Economy strategies. How can we harness the potential of data for public good?
The REFLOW OS is an operating system for communities who want to create federated and secure economic networks to foster the creation and coordination of distributed value chains. It is a system designed to operate federated nodes constituting the REFLOW network back-end infrastructure. It is targeted for adoption by the Free and Open Source communities at large and consists of a living document that is publicly available online and maintained through the course of the REFLOW project. ReflowOS is an operating system for communities who want to create federated and secure economic networks to foster the creation and coordination of distributed value chains.
