Social distancing is expected to be part of our life in the foreseeable
future. Smart city solutions are getting underway for that purpose. In
addition to the bottom-up growth of new urban-tech products and services,
top-down provision of data will be beneficial for the urban ecosystems.

Particularly now, facing new and unfamiliar situations, city-level and
national-level data are needed. However, feasible and workable data sharing
frameworks are not always available and attainable. The experience in
micro-mobility data sharing will be compared with that relating to the
COVID-19 pandemic and we will discuss the implications of data integration
on the societal and behavioral issues that are expected to emerge,
especially regarding mobility. How can we facilitate cooperability for
social distancing while maintaining public transportation? How can we
restart the economy while preserving the sudden benefits of reduced
environmental pollution? How can we apply contact tracing while respecting
civil rights? How can we put the wellbeing of individuals, families and
communities in focus? The current crisis is also an opportunity for action.
