Certification solutions for Smart Cities: Reliability of data
The UNE 178301 on Open data, an efficient tool of citizen participation and transparent management that moves towards the free availability of citizens' data. Compliance with this standard gives territories the confidence that their open data meet accessibility requirements, and can be used and reused by stakeholders, strengthening the innovation of territories thanks to new products and services.
The certification of OPEN DATA forms part of a group of key tools developed by experts in Smart Cities and Territories, which contribute to boosting Smart Territories.
The concept of a Smart Territory is consolidated as one of the basic elements of innovation strategies in territories, and is one of the priorities of the European Union's Horizon 2020 strategies.
Spain will be a pioneering country in terms of innovation regarding smart territories, thanks to frameworks of reference to develop the management of smart territories, structured around a set of standards created in the CTN 178 on Smart Cities. This is a key point to consider when attracting private investments to territories, generating jobs and increasing GDP, productivity and quality of life.
Becoming a smart territory impacts the management model of cities in various areas, such as those related to transparency, digital transformation, mobility, sustainability and economic development, etc. Therefore, in order to properly design public policies, it is important for problems to be anticipated. For this reason, innovation must work as a transverse axis in order to bring solutions to public ex-novo services and traditional services.
Through the specific conformity assessments for this sector, AENOR contributes to the strategy of smart cities and territories, helping to assess the grade of implementation of the measures and actions that identifies and characterises them.
