Open Cities App Challenge

The Open Cities App Challenge brings together two important themes of the smart city: open data and sensor networks. As part of the Open Cities project the Fraunhofer Institute FOKUS and the University Pompeu Fabra have created a data platform for developers to create services based on the data, which the cities provide.

This call is open to all developers and organizations with innovative products or services that:

  • are innovative,
  • use open data,
  • solve a real problem in citizens' every day urban life.

For more information on prizes, timelines and a guide to Open Data check out the App Challenge section on the Open Cities project.
