For urban planning challenges, such as increasing scarcity of space, hubs can pose a solution. In this paper we define hubs as an interchange, transhipment and/or node consisting of different activities, services and facilities. Hubs have the potential to contribute to urban challenges concerning mobility, logistics, livability, sustainability, ...

Impact assessments have long been used for policy evaluation as well as for assessing (emerging) technologies. Within the field of Digital Governance, impact assessments are often used to analyze policy implications or to assess the impact of technologies such as big data and artificial intelligence on public services. Furthermore, within this...

The potential of the use of data to help improve policymaking is increasingly recognized by governments, especially to address societal challenges. One of those societal challenges is the energy transition, which happens for a large part at the local government level. However, within the literature little is known about which type of...

In the field of AI ethics, after the introduction of ethical frameworks and the evaluation thereof, we seem to have arrived at a third wave in which the operationalisation of ethics is central. Operationalisation is required, since ethics frameworks are often not suited to be used by data scientists in the development of AI-based services or...

Energy poverty is emerging as a national agenda in the Netherlands. Local authority leadership and action on this agenda, and European Union reporting requirements around the energy transition have aligned to create an opportunity to establish a national agenda on this issue. Early action on energy poverty by local authorities stemmed from their...

With the rise of data analytics use in government, government organizations are starting to explore the possibilities of using business data to create further public value. This process, however, is far from straightforward: key questions that governments need to address relate to the quality of this external data and the value it brings. In the...

The literature suggests that collaborative governance efforts typically face three types of challenges: substantive problem-solving challenges, collaborative process challenges and multi-relational accountability challenges. In this article, we investigate how these challenges manifest themselves in practice and explore potential ways in which...

Digital twins run concurrently with the assets and systems they mirror. They offer real-time execution of advanced control schemes, e.g., for smart buildings, but also various analysis tasks, e.g., for predictive maintenance that ensures resilience. In this, they need to cope with change: The physical twins they mirror operate in a highly...

Organizations increasingly collaborate in digital ecosystems, whilst being aware that data is becoming a key asset. They require improved data control capabilities that prevent their shared data from being misused. Currently, such capabilities are typically realized as situation-specific closed ecosystem solutions in a 'hub-model' approach. This...

Successful electrification of cities' heating and cooling demands depends on the sustainable implementation of highly efficient ground source heat pumps (GSHP). During the last decade, the use of shallow geothermal energy (SGE) resources in urban areas has experienced an unprecedented boost which nowadays is still showing a steady 9% market...

Currently the only methods for non-genotoxic carcinogenic hazard assessment accepted by most regulatory authorities are lifetime carcinogenicity studies. However, these involve the use of large numbers of animals and the relevance of their predictive power and results has been scientifically challenged. With increased availability of innovative...

As energy generation based on renewable resources does not always match energy consumption profiles, Positive Energy Districts (PEDs) should embody energy flexibility technologies to decrease possible negative impacts on existing grids due to, e.g., reverse power flows. As part of the EU H2020 Smart Cities and Communities project POCITYF, the...

In the absence of post-2020 national binding renewable energy targets, ensuring Member States’ contributions which add up to the EU-level target by 2030 poses a challenge to the EU governance framework. Even without national targets, Member States remain key players to reach a 2030 RES target. The key question that results from the dealignment...

The origin of occupational safety, as an area of main interest of the government, the industry, the unions, and scientists starts in the Netherlands at the end of the 19th century. Roughly in the same period occupational medicine becomes a separate domain. Only just after World War II are safety professionals organised in associations. Starting...

Nanotechnologies are characterized by a growing legacy of already marketed and novel manufactured nanomaterials (MNMs) and nano-enabled products with a lack of a coherent risk governance system to address their safety effectively. In response to this situation, a proactive system is needed to minimize the gap between the pace of innovation and...
