IAAC is among the partners of the European project OrganiCity, developed within the framework of Horizon 2020 Programme. OrganiCity offers a new paradigm to European digital city making. Built on and extending the FIRE legacy, this project seeks to build a strong foundation for future sustainable cities through co-creation by a wide range of stakeholders. Europe is a champion of sustainable, inclusive and open societies; the digital age enables us to push this position further and to rethink the way we create cities and facilitate living by integrating many complex systems.
OrganiCity combines top-down planning and operations with flexible bottom-up initiatives where citizen involvement is key. By focusing on the city as a socio-technical whole, OrganiCity brings software, hardware and associated human processes flexibly together into a new living city that is replicable, scalable and sustainable.
Three clusters – Aarhus (DK), London (UK) and Santander (ES) – recognised for their digital urban initiatives, bring their various stakeholders together into a coherent effort to develop an integrated Experimentation-as-a-Service facility respecting ethical and privacy sensitivities and potentially improving the lives of millions of people. The OrganiCity consortium will create a novel set of tools for civic co-creation, well beyond the state of the art in trans-disciplinary participatory urban interaction design. The tools will be validated in each cluster and integrated across the three cities.
