A digital community for strong cities and regions
Close inter-municipal cooperation is needed for effective and widespread use of smart city solutions. Do you want to advance digitization in your municipality – and benefit from organized exchange 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(aten)”, 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.
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.
Our services for core members
Beyond the exchange in our lunch breaks with Vitamin D(aten) and the web portal DKSR.square, core members of the Urban Data Community benefit for 190€ monthly from various exchange and implementation formats as well as from the curated community github.
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 development 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 implementation: whether for project management, as a feedback loop, pragmatic pre-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!
The Urban Data Summit is the largest conference on intermunicipal cooperation in the field of data-based urban design and takes place once a year. In addition to various interactive formats, in which the participants develop important focus topics, there is professional input from a wide range of renowned experts from science, politics, administration and business. Participation is free of charge for core members.
Core members of the UDC have full access to the web portal DKSR.square including all forum areas and knowledge products. Here you will find all the important experiences of other municipal players in order to bring digital solutions to the masses. You can also quickly get in touch 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, core members receive four detailed knowledge packages per year in the form of checklists, summaries, reports and templates. Here, too, core members determine the other topics themselves.
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.
