Bristol is Open
About Bristol is Open
Bristol Is Open is developing an open programmable city region. It is a collaboration between the technology, media & telecommunications industry, universities, local communities, and local and national government. The project is governed by a joint venture between University of Bristol and Bristol City Council. Long term partners join an advisory panel that guides the joint venture on the evolution of the network, the creation of multi-partner experiments, the services that underpin the project and publicity and events surrounding the project.
The way cities work is changing. Using digital technologies, we are creating an open programmable city region that gives citizens more ways to participate-in and contribute-to the way their city works. We call it ‘City Experimentation as a Service’ and it will lead to the creation of a city operating system for the serious stuff (and the fun stuff too). Being open guides our procurement, our data management, and the hardware and the software we use, which is why our network is being developed with OpenDaylight standards. Being open means we proactively share what we learn with other cities, technology companies, universities and citizens.
