An Open Urban Platform, or OUP, is a central part of the digital infrastructure that brings together supply and demand of data and services. It unlocks urban data to various City Makers in a secure manner and ensures that it can be used and processed correctly. The basic principle is that data remains at the source and every data owner retains control over his data at all times.


An urban platform where the exchange of various data and services is organized opens doors to new services and applications that can make cities more liveable, sustainable, safer, healthier and more inclusive, such as Digital Twins, City support centers and participation apps.


Increasingly, different data and solutions are being linked together to create new applications. This also makes the management of these data flows more complex: What about dependencies if part of the service is unavailable and who has the right to make adjustments?


In addition to unlocking city data, WeCity's OUP offers options for centrally organizing the entire management and contract management.


The aim is to integrate not only municipal data, but also that of other parties such as energy companies, public transport companies and green space managers, into one urban platform.


The use of an Open Urban Platform stimulates digital collaboration. Different parties use the same source and this stimulates the transition to an information-driven organization.


For companies, connecting to an Open Urban Platform offers new business models by offering data as a service, where you always maintain control over who you share data with and for what purpose.
