Scaling: reuse and dissemination

In order to support as much reuse of the code as possible the solution working groups have to make an agreement as to how to provide ongoing governance, including:

  • Support plan: Deciding on a plan to continue support and reuse of the solution.
  • Replication workshop: Presenting the solution in a workshop (D4.7) to encourage replication of the solution (D5.3 and D5.6) in other cities not involved in development process.
  • Business cases: Working with the Aarhus University team to find further business cases and opportunities for uptake and social impact of the solutions (D6.1).
  • Training workshops: co-organised with Dordrecht to train technical and non-technical staff in the use and maintenance of the solution (D6.2).
  • Presentations: co-organised with the Aarhus University around the solution (D6.3).

IoT Registry solution example story:

The cities of Amsterdam and Aarhus agree that as long as they are using the code ‘in production’ they will provide resources to manage incoming questions, requests and suggested (minor) changes. This to ensure that a lively community of other partner developers can take root and continue to grow.

Over the next 12 months both Dordrecht and the University of Aarhus organise events and workshops that help the solution get traction, get adopted by 6 other cities and build a developer community around it. Now that the solution is adopted by the 2 developing cities, the 2 living lab implementation cities and 6 more cities the burden for maintaining the solution in the future is shared by 10 partners, meaning the quality of public service delivery rises quickly.
