We’ve launched our Open Call: Apply for 60,000 € to experiment with data!

Citizens, businesses, universities and city authorities can now apply for funding of up to 60,000 € to co-create digital solutions to urban challenges. You can now experiment in cities beyond Aarhus, London and Santander too!

OrganiCity has been developing a prototype service to support experimentation with data to improve our cities, and we are now open for experiment proposals to test this service.

What kind of experiments are we looking for?
We are specifically looking to fund experiments that test urban data and the Internet of Things. Urban data is any information generated in a city that can be measured, such as temperature, pollution, traffic levels, footfall, green areas or a tweet. So your experiment might capture new data through sensors, visualise data to make it more accessible, analyse data through new algorithms or merge datasets to uncover new information.

To apply for funding, experimenters must:

  1. Collaborate with other city stakeholders to define and run their experiment;
  2. Use at least one of the OrganiCity tools or APIs;
  3. Use or generate data;
  4. Ensure feasibility of their experiment.

Our first Open Call in 2016 supported 26 experiments and distributed a total of 800,000 € to help develop the OrganiCity Experimentation as a Service framework. We now have 1M € available to fund our second experimentation period, which will focus on integrating our framework across the three core cities of Aarhus, London and Santander and establishing sustainable ways to expand to new cities after the funded project ends in 2018.

Deadline for applications: 31 August 2017

Winners of the Open Call will be announced in Autumn 2017, and the experimentation phase will run from November 2017 – March 2018.

Good luck!
