IES Cities explored how people can use digital technologies and apps to identify and address issues in their area.
The project ran from 2013-2016, working in four pilot cities: Bristol (UK), Zaragoza (Spain), Majadahonda (Spain) and Rovereto (Italy).
In the Bristol pilot, we worked with local people and organisations to identify data that was relevant to them and life in their city. This data was used to develop and trial a series of online services and applications that were functional, engaging, innovative and relevant.
By uncovering data that’s specific to Bristol – and the communities that live here – we aimed to work together to design digital solutions for local issues. During IES Cities we drew on what we’d learned from other data projects, such as 3e Houses.
