People & Partners
The USAGE Consortium
The consortium gathers 11 partners across Europe, including local government, industry & SMEs, academia & research and standardization organizations. The emerging market of services related to Data Space for Green Deal is a complex subject and the consortium made the choice to gather diverse actors with different positions on the value chain.
The consortium has been designed to have complementary expertise among all project partners, aiming at covering most of the types of stakeholders that need to be involved in the design of urban data spaces that address some of the LGD priorities. This includes:
local authorities from the areas where the results will be deployed
industry partners with experience in the deployment of different types of data-focused solutions for local authorities, including SMEs and large companies, who will also aim at providing project results in their portfolio
research and academia performing organisations with experience in open data and data sharing for public and private organisations, with a special focus on the types of data sources and research-related problems around Green Deal problems to be dealt with in the developed urban data spaces
other partners that will ensure that results will have a larger impact and sustainability, with a standardisation body and a think tank
