Project Scope: Within each of the three domains, a large-scale Lead Pilot is carried out in one City. The experiences of the Lead Pilot will be applied in the Replication Pilots in other Partner cities.
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.

This approach will engage a great number of citizens and developers in several European Cities, informing 31 Million citizens, half a million active users and a thousand developers, creating a sustainable network to implement the Smart City concept.
The project will allow the construction of a technological convergent market, defining standards to apply in several applications.
