City of Bruges


The city of Bruges is the third biggest city in Flanders and a medium-sized city in Europe, dealing with various challenges in the domains of sustainable urban development, mobility and climate.  Our goal is to keep the city vibrant and livable for our citizens.


the city of Bruges has built experience in various fields, going from sustainable investments to data management, we have practical experience with open data and hackathons and we have extensive experience with citizen consultation through a participatory platform that we installed.

Role in the Project:

The city of Bruges will act as a source for the challenge definition and as a pilot case for the development of smart solutions.


The city expects to receive support for the clear definition of our challenges, in the publication of relevant open data, with innovative procurement and co-creation. We want, thanks to SCIFI, to bring innovation in our urban development.

View on SCIFI’s impact:

SCIFI will hopefully bring mental switch in procurement where we start from our challenges instead of the existing solutions and the creation of an extended and stronger quadruple helix network Open data reflex.
