HOW TO JOIN
The DMI ecosystem is for governments, companies and knowledge institutions. Anyone who wants to contribute to the smart and sustainable design and functioning of our cities can participate. Together we build smart, livable and future-proof cities.
The DMI ecosystem provides visibility into potential collaboration partners and new knowledge, government policies and business opportunities. Participation is entirely voluntary, but not without obligation.
Good cooperation requires agreements. Therefore, a System of Agreements has been set up to provide a solid foundation of mutual trust, with ground rules for all participants. Think of conditions for joining the ecosystem, rights and obligations, protocols for data access and use of General Facilities.
We see the DMI ecosystem as the next step toward smartly leveraging the opportunities that digitization and technology offer to address our country's major challenges. For that reason, we started the Future City Foundation in 2016. And for that reason, from the City Deals "A smart city, that's how you do it" and "Smart Customization," we have built groups with subject professionals who are collaborating about how our cities can become smart, sustainable and democratic.
We started with the 'why' question in our white-books, focused on the 'how' question in the City Deals, and are very happy that work is now underway in the DMI-ecosystem to truly implement agreements and standards. This is not easy. Because now the choices are being made that will determine the future of our regions, cities and villages. This is important and we are happy to work on it.

The social tasks in the physical domain are enormous. In order to guarantee a future-proof and sustainable living environment for future generations, it is important to properly coordinate the interdependencies, mutual influence and effects of all sectors. The shared shortage of manpower and resources underscores that need.
Digitization is essential to make this happen. The digiGo Foundation does this in public-private partnerships for the design, construction and engineering sectors. Among other things, it facilitates the scaling, validation and assurance of digital solutions through the national Digital Experience Centers (DEC) network.
By linking to the DMI ecosystem, the DEC network becomes widely available as a scaling tool and interaction between communities in the built environment, mobility and energy can be optimally facilitated. This reduces fragmentation of innovations and increases the impact of individual domain-specific investments.
