Open Data Incubator for Europe: Green City Solutions has been chosen as the first German start-up to participate in the ODINE incubation program! We were one of six applicants chosen out of more than 120 entries from across Europe during the 3rd round of the accelerator. Our “CityTree”, a free-standing vertical plant display, has the ability to target and reduce air pollution, such as fine dust and nitrous oxides, 275 times more efficiently than a normal urban tree. The own developed IoT-Technology also collects data of the climatic conditions which can be expanded to data of air quality in the cities.
ODINE is delivered by the Open Data Institute (ODI), the University of Southampton, Telefónica, The Guardian, Telefónica Open Future_, Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and the Open Knowledge Foundation Network.
