THE CHALLENGE

Create a new application for dynamic data on buildings and their environment on top of an interoperable, accessible, and ownerless connector. The app should allow for extensive bottom-up adoption of the Unique Object Identifier by all relevant stakeholders.

CONTEXT

The data landscape of the building industry and its public and private stakeholders is fragmented, siloed and ineffective. The need for trusted, federated real-time data is rising. Data is easily lost, must be copied by hand and not readily available, leading to high costs for risk management and failure costs of  €5 billion a year in NL alone.

Neither the market nor government have yet managed to transcend their own interests. A 21st-century national data infrastructure should ensure frictionless, permissioned exchange of data across organizational borders, public or private. Every ecosystem player should be able to contribute to solving shared and societal challenges.

We currently lack a standard connector to identify buildings and parts of buildings. The Unique Object Identifier should function like the familiar barcode used in many fields.

IMPACT

Breaking this loop allows everyone’s data to contribute to circularity, safety and air quality while expanding their data sovereignty. Real-time, trusted clear information will lead to less resistance to complying with rules and regulations not owned by any government.

A WINNING TEAM WILL...

Aggregate and bundle data on a real-estate object in a Unique Object Identifier, to address a major societal topic or incur large operational savings. The application will incentivize and allow for extensive bottom-up adoption by all relevant stakeholders.
Come up with a radical, but practical concept to extend the possibilities of the Identifier and produce great feedback to design the next version.

Key element
Leveraging the UOI protocol.

WHAT HAPPENS
WITH THE WINNER

The challenge ecosystem will support the launch of the winning solution onto the market. Depending on the use case, the ecosystem will launch a customer or co-developer for the application.
