We are excited to announce our participation in the Data Space for Smart and Sustainable Cities and Communities (DS4SSCC) initiative, funded by the European Commission.

The DS4SSCC initiative brings together a diverse consortium of partners, including municipalities, research institutions, and technology companies, united by a common goal: to create data spaces that facilitate collaboration and innovation. The goal is to do preparatory action for the creation of a data space for smart communities as an enabler of the EU Green Deal goals and Sustainable Development Goals.

In order to achieve this, the project aims for several objectives, including developing a multi-stakeholder data governance scheme by bringing together European cities and their local stakeholders, and creating a catalogue of stable specifications together with valid open source and commercially available implementations of specifications.

By joining the DS4SSCC project Latitudo 40 establishes the commitment to shape the cities of tomorrow. Our platform EarthDataPlace fits well with the objectives of the initiative. By creating a database of European cities and their environmental KPIs, we can monitor sustainability programmes and risk mitigation, synergising our aims with the ambition of the initiative.

As we embark on this project, we are excited about the prospects of building smart and sustainable cities through data-driven innovation. Together with our partners and stakeholders, we are committed to driving positive change and to foster collaboration in the field of smart cities and urban planning.
