Inspire your smart city ideas!

Earlier this year we launched OrganiCity at a workshop where we presented the concept. Now we are pleased to invite companies, business developers, organisations etc. to a morning meeting where we present the first open calls for city experiments.

At the meeting, we will inform you about the upcoming two open calls for co-creative experiments based on the OrganiCity Platform. They will be launched in 2016 and 2017, respectively.

The first call will be launched in January 2016, when one third of the funds will be released. Companies and others interested can apply for funds from a total budget of 1.5 million DKK to be distributed among Aarhus experiments.

Join the meeting if you want to learn about:

  • How other European cities involve their citizens and companies in smart city collaboration
  • How to apply for funds allocated for city experiments based on co-creation
  • What technologies will be made available for the experiments
