Create added value based on data

Urban data can be used to shape urban development in an innovative and sustainable way. To this end, we build, based on municipal needs, on our ecosystem of solution providers. In close cooperation with municipal stakeholders, we develop a uniform data infrastructure that can be used as a basis for successfully implementing tried-and-tested smart city applications – whether commercial or open source: We bring municipal stakeholders and solution providers directly into contact with each other. The DKSR.square web portal is a quick way to find out which data-based solutions already exist for existing challenges. Companies can present their applications free of charge.

Do you offer data or data-based applications that can be used sustainably in municipalities? Feel free to contact us! Together we can create real added value in cities and regions.

A Data Ecosystem:
For Cities & Regions of the Future


We believe that a thriving Urban Data ecosystem needs a neutral facilitator. Therefore, we are committed to independence, transparency & objectivity. Through transparent processes, easy access, and equal rules, we ensure that all providers can become part of the urban data ecosystem.


Our Urban Data Platform DKSR OUP is based on open standards, recognized reference architectures, and open-source code. This openness and interoperability make the DKSR OUP the perfect foundation for an Urban Data ecosystem.

Various Innovation Partnerships:
For Sustainable Collaboration

We collaborate with companies that want to quickly bring their data and data-based applications into sustainable use for cities and regions. In this way, we increase the range of available data for municipalities and thus boost municipal innovation. The available spectrum of data ranges from sensor data on air quality to locations of electric street controllers to windshield wiper data from motor vehicle fleets. These can be used in a variety of ways to make urban spaces better and more sustainable for citizens: For lower emission buildings, better e-scooter management, or early severe weather warnings.

Join us as a company to put your data and digital applications to work for the common good!

Easy Market Access

The DKSR.square web portal gives cooperating municipalities and municipal subsidiaries access to solutions from our partner companies. On the portal, providers can register their products, commercial or open-source, and communicate them to municipal partners. Companies also have the opportunity to identify current challenges facing cities and to participate in the discussion about possible solutions.

Independent ecosystem

We do not develop our own solutions and therefore act independently. Our role is to facilitate access to data in order to develop solutions that benefit all cities and regions. We provide technical advice and establish contacts – regardless of whether it’s a small start-up, a medium-sized company, or a major corporation.

Standardized data access

We are establishing a uniform infrastructure in all DKSR partner municipalities. Once the respective municipality has approved it, data can be obtained from our platform via an interface. We take over the high workload of connecting the different systems on-site for you. In consultation with our municipal customers, we also provide transparency about available data in a uniform data catalog.

Clear division of labor

You are the experts for product development. DKSR takes care of a functioning infrastructure (data acceptance and provision), which you can use as a basis for the deployment of your data-specific offerings.

Transparent co-creation

Together with you, we want to bring structure to the complex urban data market: from the definition of data models to joint funding and research projects to the pooling of resources and publication of positions.
