A digital community for strong cities and regions
Close inter-municipal cooperation is needed for an effective and widespread use of smart city solutions. Do you want to advance digitization in your municipality – and benefit from organized collaboration with others? Exchange ideas and work together: Become part of the Urban Data Community and take advantage of our wide range of formats for developing and implementing data-based solutions!
With the web portal DKSR.square and our brown bag meetings “Lunch Break with Vitamin D(ata)”, we offer municipal stakeholders the free opportunity to get a taste of the world of added value of urban data use. For core members, it goes beyond networking directly into implementation: We ensure this with our strong event offering and exclusive information formats.
Beyond the exchange in our lunches with Vitamin D(ata) and the web portal DKSR.square, core members of the Urban Data Community benefit from concrete exchange and implementation formats as well as from the collaborative Github.
Our services for core members
Build on existing solutions instead of starting from scratch: This is made possible by the common Github for core members, where the code of already implemented data-based applications from the community is shared.
Communities that share implementations with the community are rewarded with community coins. These, in turn, can be exchanged for discounted DKSR products and services.
Once a quarter, we organize an online exchange with your team to discuss your current smart city and digital projects and further progress. The focus is always on practical advice for implementations: whether on managing your digital projects, feedback, pragmatic up-front consulting – or the exchange of expertise in organized specialist and expert groups.
The bi-annual community meetings in various local cities combine interactive formats, workshops and presentations on your projects and current smart city topics with accompanying events such as visits to inspiring places and joint dinners. This is how networking really works!
Core members of the UDC have full access to the web portal DKSR.square including all forum areas and knowledge products. Here you can find all the important experiences of other municipal stakeholders to bring digital solutions to the people. You can also quickly connect with companies that have the right solutions ready for implementation. Core members have protected forums and are actively involved in the further development of DKSR.square.
In addition to the articles on DKSR.square, Power members receive four detailed knowledge products per year in the form of checklists, summaries, reports and templates. Here, too, core members determine the focus.
If a concrete need for action arises from the community, interested cities can develop and implement joint solutions in working groups with the expert support of DKSR.
What makes the Power Membership special
Core members of the community actively determine the content: This includes the topics of vitamin D breaks, knowledge products, workshops and the further development of DKSR.square.
Organized & Moderated
The community is actively organized by DKSR. You do not have to take care of any formalities: We organize the regular exchange between members, moderate events and prepare the results.
The focus of all activities and formats of the community is the implementation of sustainable smart city solutions. We enable and connect you with the most important players for fast and confident application.
