March 14, 2012 - Open Data: First Steps towards Milan Digital City

A few months after the important resolution that will allow the city to take advantage of a free Wi-Fi with 1200 free hotspots, distributed throughout the city, Milan decided to “bet” on another aspect of crucial importance within the Digital Agenda: the Open Data project. A digital city, in fact, is “Open Data”, which means to make available online all the data produced by the municipality so that anyone can use them for innovative public and private ideas (e.g. data on transport, environment, on waste, parking, hours of shops and much more).

The Mayor, Giuliano Pisapia, will open the meeting, supported by the Tech Law Center, the Nexa Center for Internet & Society, Topix and sponsored by the city of Milan. During the event, the first projects undertaken by young programmers to improve the online services of the City of Milan will be presented and a permanent working group on research and analysis on Open Data will be created.
