What is the Score Development Sprint Week?

The SCORE team decided to host a Development Sprint in Ghent from 16 March to 20 March 2020.

The organizers’ idea is to form a motivated remote team for a week gathered to co-develop, go from ideas to common prototype, produce the next iteration of an existing solution, and tackle other challenges together. Each day, participants will discuss their progresses and continuously share their knowledge and work through dedicated communication channels.

The Ghent Developers Sprint is the opportunity to take a ‘hands-on’ approach for a week.  It will also be the occasion to forward the SCORE work plan on challenges, solutions, applications and outreach in all work packages.


During the online event, participants will have the possibility to attend the following activities:

  • A SCORE coordination work packages meeting;
  • A Development Sprint on the following topics:
    • IOT Registry: backlog check
    • Bradford mobility data insights
    • QR Code Toolkit: backlog check
    • Crowd Flow Dashboard prototype
  • An information session on ‘Open and loveable data’, with Pieter Colpaert (Ghent University, Open Knowledge Belgium), Raf Buyle (Flemish Information Agency, Open Knowledge Belgium) and Juanita Devis (IMEC)

Attendance is free of charge, but registration is required. For all information on the registration and attendance links, please consult this shared document.

What is SCORE?

SCORE - Smart Cities + Open Data Re-use: The project SCORE (Smart Cities Open data Re-use) aims to increase efficiency and quality of public services in cities based on smart and open data-driven solutions.

SCORE is a European funded project with nine cities: Amsterdam, Aarhus, Aberdeen, Bergen, Bradford, Dordrecht, Ghent, Gothenburg & Hamburg and three universities cooperate. The partner cities have innovative solutions based upon open data for example for better management of sustainable mobility, air quality, flooding and crowd management. The solutions are shared between the cities, improved and made available for other European cities.
