About Republiq:

Making all public real estate smart. That is our goal. Who we are? We are Republiq: a young consultancy firm. We combine the knowledge we have on public real estate with the insights we gather from open and shared data. This to support our clients to make smarter decisions related to their real estate.

An example of questions our clients are coping with: As a municipality, can I use my buildings in such a way that I support the right people? Can I make housing more affordable, available and of a better quality as a housing association? Our ambition is to make the answers to these questions more evidence based, by developing data-driven tools. We help clients throughout the Netherlands: we worked with the TU/e as well as with the municipality of Groningen.

Symposium | Law meets Data Science

Problem buying tickets? We have noticed that buying tickets is not always possible and that it depends on your bank. Having trouble? Just shoot us a message at or via the Facebook page on the left. You can reserve a ticket and pay in cash/via card at the desk this Thursday.

On November 29th, Magister JFT | E-law, D.S.A. Pattern and KNVI-JI & IT Recht organize the Law meets Data Science symposium.
It is no secret that misuse of personal data can get a company in big trouble with the law. Let it be clear that knowledge of the law can be benificial for the average data scientist. But can data science help the law as well? Do administration and automated decision making go well together? These and more questions get answered in the Law meets Data Science Symposium.

We have three awesome speakers from various disciplines and two students who will tell about their studies. To wrap up, there's a paneldiscussion between all speakers with questions that may provoke heated debate, so stay seated until the end! You will be rewarded with some drinks and an opportunity to talk to and discuss further.
