EuroCities based on the interest of its members is launching a pilot project in 2020 to co-create digital solutions, to tackle common challenges and to scale up existing successful solutions.
The aim of the project is to scale up the on-going Citizen Card prototype in many European cities, with different digital capacity and local contexts. This project also contributes as a pilot project of the living-in.eu initiative on upscaling existing urban digital solutions in
Europe’s cities and communities.
Current status of the project: Several European countries and cities have or want to introduce a Citizen Card. Based on these best practices, insights and current and future EU-regulations the project team will create a generic approach to and architecture for an interoperable, privacy friendly, convenient, safe and secure Citizen Card which can address several purposes and link to public and private services. To create such a model, 8 cities are sharing their expertise, experiences and insights.
Based on these learnings, a white label Citizen Card will be suggested combining both a physical card and an app.
Participating pilot cities: Zaragoza, Gijón, Porto, Pau, Rotterdam, Eindhoven, Bratislava and Valladolid. The cities of Barcelona and Ghent are also involved as reviewers of the process and the results delivered.
The Digital Living Lab Days Scaling up session will focus on aspect(s) in which the Living Lab community is strong and can more easily mobilize experts. Such as co-creation with end users and validation of first trials.
The aim of the session is to progress with the white labelling the good practices and building customised services which clearly connect to citizens needs and wishes.
