After a very successful first edition, we’re happy to announce we’re back for Smart City Hack 2016. Dropping the ‘app’ from our name, we’re decided to launch a more open, collaborative and tech focused entity. Now all technologies focused on improving your area’s smart city capabilities will be accepted – from mobile applications to IoT.
Once more working with the knowledge that more than half of the world’s population will live in cities by 2050, we understand the only way to meet these challenges is for cities themselves to adapt and evolve. Smart City Hack provides the opportunity and platform for cities and organisations around the world to reach their smart city empowered citizens and tackle universal urban problems by creating specific, usable and sustainable app-based solutions.
This year’s themes on which to work are Health and Welfare, Collaborative Cities, Culture and Tourism; Urban Mobility and Energy and Emissions
With our online incubation platform developers can access resources, mentorship and specialized face-to-face online workshops to improve and implement their innovative projects.
Registration for interested cities, councils and smart citizens is now open so get involved!
