To provide local stakeholders with a safe and easy way to share their data that lets them stay in control, giving them access to a onestop shop for a wide range of regional data which can be used to create and improve digital services centred around responsible and ethical data management.

Go to Rudi

Rudi is a platform for sharing data at the local level. Prototyped with the support of the European Union as part of the « Urban Innovative Action » initiative between 2020 and 2023. By involving different types of users in its design, Rudi enables local stakeholders to share their data easily and securely while retaining control of it and to access a large amount of local data in one place to enable the creation and improvement of digital services based on responsible and ethical data management. This makes it possible to access open data, but also restricted data on demand.

Rudi addresses public actors as well as companies, researchers and inhabitants and puts them in contact with each other, offering, in addition to technical functionalities, support services and a local data community dynamic. The platform is built on a distributed and replicable open source model to facilitate its appropriation by other territories.

Version 1.0, published on the occasion of the Rudi 2023 conference, is the result of three and a half years of collaborative work with the many partners and stakeholders in the project since 2019. Although many changes and corrections are still to come, this first complete version makes it possible to reflect the ambition of the Rudi platform, to invite everyone to take ownership of it and to project themselves in its use, but also to contribute to its improvement.
