Cities worldwide face serious data-related challenges and are formulating strong ambitions with regards to topics like smart cities, open data, big data, and data driven, evidence based policy making.  Also cities are using data more and more in contributing to the Sustainable Development Goals by working with organizations like World Council on City Data. In other words, cities want and need work with data. However, often the problem is that city-officials  are no data experts.

 The Dutch city of Eindhoven realised this in the summer of 2016 and challenged CBS Statistics Netherlands to jointly develop a solution for this problem.
