The Living Lab Phase:

Contractors, Hackathons and More....

The Consortia below have reached the 3rd Phase of the SELECT for Cities PCP. In this Living Lab Phase they tested their Platforms against the skills of a mix of in-house, City and external developers and the end-users of the cities of Antwerp, Helsinki! Following up the evaluation of the Contractors' solutions, the Buyers Group ranked the remaining three Contractors as follows:

  1. University of Florence

  2. Indra Soluciones Tecnologias de la Informacion S.L.U.

  3. Engineering Ingegneria Informatica S.P.A. 

Congratulations to all the Contractors for innovative solutions and hard work! Well done!

The Living Lab Phase comprised of three iterations:

 

  1. Platforms ready for the Living Lab in Antwerp & Helsinki,

  2. Developers create apps & dashboards for the Antwerp & Helsinki use cases

  3. Real-life testing of the Platforms by citizens, tourists, city officials and business owners in Antwerp & Helsinki

 

The Contractors' platforms have been successfully installed and are ready for the developer communities.  New apps for the Platforms were developed through a mix of open calls, in-house development and hackathons. The apps focused on the current projects in the Antwerp Smart Zone and the Jatkasaari Living Lab in Helsinki.

 

Check below for detailed information on how to participate in the hackathons and open calls.
