Abstract

The hegemonic ‘smart city’ approach in the European H2020 institutional framework is slowly evolving into a new citizen-centric paradigm called the ‘experimental city’. While this evolution incorporates social innovations — including urban co-operative platforms that are flourishing as (smart) citizens are increasingly considered decision-makers rather than data providers — certain underlying ethical and democratic issues concerning the techno-politics of data remain unresolved.
