OUR OPEN URBAN PLATFORM IS AVAILABLE IN UK
The Data Competence Center for Cities and Regions (DKSR) is pleased to announce the launch of its open-source Urban Data Platform in the UK, with an outstanding offer for Local Authorities.
The DKSR platform empowers Local Authorities to meet Net Zero Targets with a unique combination of data driven technology, expertise and services. With over 100 cities worldwide using the open data platform DKSR intends to offer our extensive data capabilities to the UK.
Our open-source Urban Data Platform allows Local Authorities to connect and make the most out of data, retaining full control and ownership enabling the monitoring, reporting and delivering of its Scope 1, 2 and 3 Net Zero obligations for topics such as building retrofit, energy efficiency, fleet transition & active travel and waste management.
After collecting experience in Europe, DKSR is looking for a small number of innovative Local Authorities and Boroughs in the UK who want to act as pathfinders and help shape the DKSR offer to the UK market. This is a unique opportunity to access our products and services, exchange and replicate proven solutions, and participate in the creation of DKSR UK.
