OrganiCity is a cross-European funding, support and IT capability mechanism for experimentation of new urban data driven solutions that address pressing city challenges, with a core principle of ‘Co creation’ and ‘Real World Experimentation’ in funding and supporting the defining of problems and reaching solutions. Its model is an ‘Experimentation as a Service’ (EaaS) offering, federating across several European cities. Researchers at TA have been investigating Organicity and it’s ecosystem of ‘experimenters’ it has supported, in understanding the barriers and challenges in EaaS, and urban data business model development.
