Team: HOP Ubiquitous (HOPU)
Siidi enables the citizens to participate in the co-creation, active participation and enhancement of a new public space in their region. In particular, Siidi has focused on new districts in Aarhus, Denmark. Siidi has offered an innovative co-creation tool to get inputs about what types of spaces citizens think are important in the new district.
Key members are: Antonio J. Jara (CEO), Matilde Server (Communication), Andrea Gómez (Creative), Germán Molina and Felipe Roca (Software developer)
“Siidi has been designed to enhance the existing co-creation techniques with a full democratic tool. The value of Siidi is in the active involvement of the citizens in urban planning, the capacity to discover and define issues via co-creation of potential services and solution. This enhances the efficiency, sustainability and usability of the city.”

4. Following printed instruction, the sensors ‘Smart Spots’ were assembled and installed in Institut for X.
We developed Smart Spots, which interacts with smartphones in the surrounding area, to emit information about Point of Interest, using ‘Physical Web’ technology.
Siidi platform (www.siidi.eu), which includes the Mobile and Desktop Web App that offers different options and topics for the users to participate in the development of their district.
