Conference on Smart Cities

22.01.2019 BE law

On 22 januari 2019, Stibbe organizes with Die Keure a conference on Smart Cities and the many legal challenges they pose, with topics such as blockchain, GDPR, innovative urban development, energy supply, innovative public procurement and self-driving cars.

Belgian cities and municipalities are increasingly feeling the impact and possibilities of global challenges such as mobility, digitization, climate, scarcity of raw materials and energy, etc. As "Smart Cities" they can use all kinds of new technologies and huge collections of data in order to to make life easier for citizens, while optimizing the processes and services within the city. In addition to the numerous possibilities offered by Smart Cities, a large number of legal questions arise, for which an approach is still lacking for the time being. During this seminar we want to address some of these legal issues and discuss possible solutions.

Stibbe lawyers Erik Valgaeren and Carolien Michielsen talk about (i) open data, data collection and data processing by public and private entities and (ii) propose a case study on the liability rules for self-driving cars.

Guan Schaiko and Cedric Degreef discuss the potential of the existing planning tools for smart cities.
