Do you have an innovative idea for an app for Smart Cities or Smart SMEs? 400 000 € in prizes will be awarded for these themes in Europe’s biggest app challenge. Deadline for competition entries is the 20th of December, 2013.
The goal of the FIWARE800K competition is to boost applications that help build smarter cities & smarter businesses. Campus Party, the world’s largest geek forum, will manage the contest.
The competition entries should build on the building blocks deployed in the EU’s FIWARE project to build the core platform of tomorrow’s internet. 50 of these existing building blocks already exist and are freely available through the FIWARE Open Innovation Lab for developers to experiment with. The building blocks provide generic functions that can be used by a wide range of different applications from all kinds of sectors, like cloud hosting, big data analysis, identity management or the Internet of Things.
The app challenge seeks to enable innovative services based on these building blocks. Read more.
