About SCIFI: Smart Cities Innovation Framework Implementation
Open public data is a key innovation area with the potential to stimulate the Two Seas regional economy and promote the delivery of smart public services. Open public data is estimated to have €300 billion of unlocked value. Being both data suppliers and users, cities are ideally positioned as launching customers for innovative products and services.
SCIFI aims to activate the market for innovative solutions to improve public service delivery using data. Cities collaborate on identifying shared challenges in mobility, energy and environment. They jointly explore innovative procurement methods to work with businesses in developing data-based solutions, implementing them in living labs, and demonstrating the value of open data.
The partners include the French OASC member city Saint-Quentin and the local living lab Faubourg Numerique. Other cities participating in SCIFI are Bruges and Mechelen (BE), and Delft (NL). Further project partners are Agoria (BE), University of Southampton (UK), and Cambridge Cleantech (UK).
