Creative Ring is a bottom-up network of Aarhus, Barcelona, Brussels, Eindhoven, Espoo and Ghent working together to stimulate passion-based co-creation in their cities and across Europe. Creative Ring exchanges ecosystem intelligence amongst its members and opens up opportunities for artists, designers and makers in the creative industry as well imaginative researchers, prototyping tinkerers and many other types of creatives.

Gigabit Society Event – 20 september 2018, De Oude Rechtbank, Eindhoven. Hoe ziet de stad eruit als die straks volledig is uitgerust met Internet of Things technologie? Als straks iedereen in de stad een onuitputtelijke internet verbinding heeft? Wat is de impact op de stad, als alles en iedereen straks kan communiceren met een snelheid van 1 Gigabit per seconde? En wat betekent dat voor onze samenleving?

Deelname aan het Gigabit Society Event zorgt ervoor dat je beter zicht krijgt op hoe beter beleid gemaakt kan worden voor de digitale transformatie van een stad.

In de ochtend wordt vooral ingegaan op beleidsmatige zaken, achtergronden bij keuzes, privacy, Open Data Principles en IoT charter. s’ Middags gaat het vooral over de keuze voor systeemarchitectuur, implementatie van de Starterskit, juridische vraagstukken en techniek.
