Who will help the government to map cyclists movement or to come up with a solution for bicycle traffic jams, unsafe intersections and annoying broken bicycles on the street? Who helps motorists who want to find a parking spot? Which concept provides travellers with relevant information about their routes, delays or diversions? We will find out at the final event of the challenge Open Data FWD.

The City of Amsterdam (DIVV) and Waag are organizing this challenge together with other cities in the Netherlands to find people that can use open data to create apps or services with social value.
