City SDK | Helping cities open their data and giving developers the tools they need

WELCOME TO CITYSDK

CitySDK is creating a toolkit for the development of digital services within cities. The toolkit comprises of open and interoperable digital service interfaces as well as processes, guidelines and usability standards. CitySDK enables a more efficient utlisation of the expertise and know-how of developer communities to be applied in city service development.

The project is working in the areas of participation, mobility and tourism and has 8 cities across Europe as partners: Helsinki, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Manchester, Lamia, Istanbul, Lisbon and Rome.

If you are a city interested in the approach we are taking and would be interested in the interface and toolkit and if you are a developer looking to develop Apps that work in different European cities then get in touch.
