Our Vision

Our vision for Dublin is for a smart open city; open access to public data, open to new technology, open to new ways of working and new collaborations.

Smart Dublin is a collaboration framework for Dublin that enables the co-creation of solutions to priority city region challenges.

Operational Challenges

Led by the 4 Dublin local authorities it sets out key operational challenges faced by the city region across the areas of mobility, environment and energy. The framework provides a new approach to encourage the development of solutions that specifically address these real needs, with an emphasis on applying emerging technology opportunities.

It is a framework & platform to pitch ideas and solutions and to get involved!
