ICT Opportunities in Cambridge (UK) and Kazan (Russia)
This is the second in a series of city case study publications as part of the Real-Time Cities Research Programme. It is becoming increasingly evident that cities have an opportunity to stimulate economic growth by opening up their substantial sources of data to digital service innovators. To become true real-time cities, they want to do more than simply publish existing information and processes online. Differentiation lies in the foundations they put down in terms of data strategy, governance structures, and partnerships. This study profiles the early-stage open data strategies of two European cities, Cambridge (UK) and Kazan (Russia). It provides an analysis of each city’s goals, activities with partners, and challenges.


- To profile the open data strategies of ‘second wave’ real-time cities in Europe the report defines second wave cities and towns as those that have ambitions to achieve policy objectives through data and deployment of Internet of Things (IoT) technology, but lack the size and socio-economic challenges to attract significant public and private project funding.

- To analyse how these cities are achieving their goals and benefiting from best practice examples from larger cities.

- To benchmark their progress towards these goals.

Research Methodology

Cities were selected for profiling based on their support for open data, recent investment, and partnership activity. Sources of information include the following:

- Interviews with representatives of the city council, such as the Chief Information Officer (CIO); academic or R&D partners; and/or ICT partners
- Results of online survey
- Secondary research from publicly available documentation Each city’s approach to open data is benchmarked in terms of the following:
- ICT attractiveness: A composite measure of data strategy and governance, commercial sustainability, innovativeness, ambition, and partnership strategy
- Data intensity/programme maturity: Relative measures of data intensity, maturity, and financial support
