Most European cities have collected a large amount of data related to public space availability and usage. With the increasing use of new technologies, mainly thanks to the IoT (Internet of Things), more and more data will be available in the coming years. However, specialist data science knowledge is essential to transform this data into useful information and to translate business and operational needs into data-driven specifications.

Agile Data Analysis for sustainable cities and citizens (ADA) is an EIT Urban Mobility activity that aims to develop training courses to reduce the existing knowledge gap in big data and data science among urban mobility professionals and organisations. These interactive courses are complemented with virtual data labs where participants can experience hands-on training activities using real data. Content includes how best to collect, analyse and use data to inform decisions; design business models; and build resilience into urban mobility activities.
