Seed money for E-URban

2 12 2014

My university and the city of Rotterdam have decided to grant us considerable seed money for our new research centre about urban big data (E-URban). It allows us for a period of two years to organise a number of expert meetings with researchers, city officials and professionals, to explore the possibilities of big data analysis to address concrete challenges in the areas of health, wealth, culture and governance in Rotterdam.  We’ll also use the funding to prepare for bigger proposals, and to conduct some quick topical research that shows the potential and pitfalls of big and open data projects. Our core team consists of Jan van Dalen (School of Management), Lex Burdorf (Medical Centre) and Franciska de Jong (Humanities).
