Supporters Meeting

Living-in.EU Supporters Meeting

Sophie Meszaros
Project Manager

In view of the various smart communities event such as the European Week of Regions and Cities on 9-12 October, and the Smart City Expo World Congresson 7-9 November, it was timely for the Living-in.EU supporters to come together and have a recap of recent smart community activities.   

The online Living-in.EU Supporters meeting invited all organizations that supported the Living-in.EU Declaration to learn about the results of the Data Space for Smart and Sustainable Cities and Communities preparatory action, and the technical standardisation survey results conducted by OASC.

The Data Space for Smart and Sustainable Cities and Communities project resulted in tangible tools such as:

  • data space blueprint for smart communities (including a multi-stakeholder governance scheme, technical specifications of building blocks, and architecture)
  • a cheatsheet to help the deployment of the blueprint
  • a data cooperation canvas
  • online navigable catalogue (soon to be released)

The survey revealed that beyond the usual suspects there is an increased interest in open-source standards and a great demand in using existing standards and providing examples of using those instead of creating new ones. 

Come and join us at our last Living-in.EU community event in 2023, the Living-in.EU Stakeholders meeting on the 4th of December 1pm-3pm. Learn about our missing, relevant policies, tools and ongoing projects and calls.
