Calling all developers – entrepreneurs, startups, micro-SMEs and SMEs
Apply to participate in the second hackathon sponsored by the MONICA project which will take place at the Emerald Headingly Stadium on 26th-28th October 2018.
The theme is large-scale sports events and the challenge is to design digital technologies to enhance sports fan engagement and experience at the event. You will be challenged to build an innovative data-driven application which could include for example finding your way to the bar or toilet with the shortest queue, augmented reality for events, gamification, etc.
Prize money, free access to Growth Programme and real-world testbed
Collaborate and compete for recognition and a prize by participating on your own, or as a member of a team of up to three. The winner or winning team will receive €5000, free access to a Business Growth Programme and if appropriate an opportunity for a working prototype to be integrated and tested in a MONICA testbed, a real-world scenario.
The challenge is to build an application, utility or service, using data provided by the MONICA open data platform. The MONICA platform will give you access to data and real-time streams that can be leveraged to create an application, utility or service that supports the MONICA project objectives.
