Do you want to be involved in developing new smart services? Do you want to take part in inspiring seminars on digitization and open data? Then you should sign up for the Gothenburg event during the Nordic Open Data Week 2015. It is free and you can compete for great prizes.

On May 30, 2015 organizes the City of Gothenburg, together with SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden and the Social Media Club Gothenburg a full day around open data. During the day there will be workshops on innovation, open data and digital services. In addition, organized a hackathon, where you as an innovator will be able to develop ideas with those data sets available, along with other participants. The event is supported by VINNOVA.

The competition focuses on solving the challenges emanating from the three sustainability pillars, socially, economically and an ecologically sustainable society. Compete individually or in teams. You can start developing your contribution as soon as you have registered. On May 30, all participants gathers for the on-site development of ideas through visualization of prototypes and suggestions. The ideas will be demonstrated for the audience and the winner is decided by the end of the day.

– My hope is that we can get to see all sorts of exciting creations, why not a horn saluting us Gothenburgers when we fall below our levels of air pollution, says Ronald Caous, leading Gothenburg digital development.

Welcome!
