Does your city want to use the full potential of ever-increasing data volumes? Does your city open up public data? Do you have an urban platform or are about to deploy one? Then the‘Urban Platforms’ initiative within the EIP Smart Cities is for you.

Icono-Integrated-Infrastructures_1Within the EIP a group of 17 cities led by London have looked more closely at those topics, and realised that urban platforms provide a vital foundation for smart city infrastructure and service improvements. Together they have developed a common core set of city-needs-led requirements to support the acquisition of “Urban Platforms”, co-developed and validated by 17 EU cities, including London, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Syracuse, Berlin, Ghent, Valencia, Murcia, Derry, Copenhagen, Scottish cities, Porto and Riga.
Here you can get a preview of what they have come up with. Join them by signing the Letter of Intent and you will get full access to all documents and can learn with them. Related supporting documents, like procurement templates are in preparation and the ongoing cooperation with the supply side and standardization add a particularly interesting angle.
Don’t forget to sign up to the General Assembly of the EIP on 24 May to interact face-to-face!
