The second OrganiCity Open Call has €1M available in to solve city challenges in London, Aarhus, and Santander.

Funded by the European Commission, OrganiCity encourages city leaders and local authorities to create a digital testbed to experiment with new uses of urban data in real-life city settings. This is an opportunity to explore new, innovative services that expand beyond traditional municipal services such as waste collection and road management.

Citizens, small businesses, universities and corporations are encouraged to apply for up to €60,000 per application for co-creation of digital solutions to improve cities’ responses to urban challenges. Entrants have 11 weeks to develop their proposals which must explore the use of urban data.

“We’re excited to launch OrganiCity’s second Open Call. In our first call, we supported 26 experiments and distributed a total of €800,000 on projects ranging from air quality, urban mobility, connecting communities and improving green spaces. We expect this second Open Call to expand upon those successes and to support even more co-created innovations.”

Martin Brynskov, Project Coordinator of OrganiCity
