Introduce yourself!


Hey all,

Most of us don’t know each other so I thought it would be nice to tell everyone a bit about ourselves.

I am Boris van Hoytema and am working with Bax & Company and Amsterdam to provide help on the topics of Open Source, Agile and Open Collaboration. Feel free to ask me anything.

I’m super excited about SCORE mainly because I feel that learning how to use, develop and maintain software together is super important.

And you?

During the day I’m a Foresight Specialist, we do research to future societal and technological challenges, but in this case I’m also doing international collaborations for Digipolis.

I have experience with FP7, CEF and H2020 in regards to European projects. Regarding innovation, I’m mostly a project manager with experience in organising small gatherings, to organising full blown conferences workshops, hackathons and coding camps.

I am Dhaval Thakker from University of Bradford, UK. I am an academic interested in linked data, knowledge engineering and Internet of Things (IoT). I am a programme leader for our MSc in IoT course and also lead the coordination of the IoT Innovation lab in the university. I am experienced in EU and Innovate UK projects and currently involved in a EU project on smart infrastructure and an Innovate UK projet on New Generation of Intelligent Drone Imagery.

I am excited about SCORE due to unique challenges and opportunities it offers. Challenges from my perspective are sharing of knowledge and processes in such a transnational development environment, and opportunities are to do with what we can learn from such challenges and group of exciting partners.

Looking forward to working with everyone!

I’m Michelle from the City of Aarhus. I work in the ITK (Innovation, Technology and Creativity) department, where we among other things work with smart city projects, open data, city lab and LoraWAN. This is also here our developer team is placed.

I’m involved in SCORE as project lead primarily regarding administration matters.
My experince derives from varoius smart city projects both internally in the city (e.g. creating a new common platform for hearings in the city), as well as externally e.g. H2020 projects like IoTCrawler (how can we create a “google” for IoT devices). I’m part of the Smart Aarhus secretary aswell.

My field of expertise is therefore within the smart city domain with focus on co-creation, partnerships and communication.


Hi SCORE family,
