Talk given on March 19th 2014 at the European Data Forum, Athens.

CitySDK is a European Consortium consisting of 23 partners in nine countries, lead by Forum Virium Helsinki, Finland. It runs from January 2012 till June 2014. CitySDK encompasses eight cities and city regions, six private companies, three development and expert organizations, one network organisation and five research institutes.

Helping cities to open their data and giving developers the tools they need, the CitySDK aims for a step change in how to deliver services in urban environments. With governments around the world looking at open data as a kick start for their economies, CitySDK provides better and easier ways for the cities throughout the Europe to release their data in a format that is easy for the developers to re-use.

Taking the best practices around the world the project will foresee the development of a toolkit – CitySDK v1.0 – that can be used by any city looking to create a sustainable infrastructure of “city apps”. The toolkit comprises of open and interoperable digital service interfaces as well as processes, guidelines and usability standards. CitySDK enables a more efficient utilisation of the expertise and know-how of developer communities to be applied in city service development. Apps and tools for CitySDK are developed in cooperation with the Code for Europe fellows (see http://www.codeforeurope.net)

The Project focuses on three Pilot domains: Smart Participation, Smart Mobility and Smart Tourism. Within each of the three domains, a large-scale Lead Pilot is carried out in one city. The experiences of the Lead Pilot will be applied in the Replication Pilots in other partner cities.

The project wants to engage with the Developer community in each of the participating cities and across Europe. This takes place through hackathons, apps challenges, and developer meet ups in the partner cities, as well as through dissemination via existing events such as PICNIC, FutureEverything and OKFest.

In addition the CitySDK will be made available, along with links to the open data from the various partner cities, and developers will be encouraged to work with this to create new ideas and applications for the partner cities and others.
