    The Creative Ring Challenge took place simultaneously in Barcelona, Ghent, Eindhoven, Brussels, Helsinki and Trentino. Each of the hubs identified a theme in which they were looking for solution to implement in their city environment.

    Cities are in a constant state of flux and often their available infrastructure and solutions no longer fit the proper needs in this eternally evolving society. Museums and cultural institutions are also hungry for creative, ICT and mobile solutions, and the Creative Ring Challenge wants to reward innovative entrepreneurs  that are ready to offer smart services and solution.

    Selected projects get access to the resources of CreatiFI and start developing their application with FIWARE technology. They will work closely together with their local creative hub to test and implement their project in an urban environment.

    The selected projects from the Benelux Challenge are;

    OJOO  – BE: We are the WordPress for mobile experiences; allowing everybody without budget or technical skills to create engaging mobile experiences!

    Open Track  – UK: We are building a new platform, OpenTrack, to manage athletics and running competitions more efficiently.

    sCool  – BE: sCool tackles the digital, new media and STEM challenges that primary schools are facing offering a learning platform and a free community for school kids.

    Open Move  – IT: OpenMove is a software solution for smart mobility that allows to create, edit and sell digital tickets of transport and parking via app or webapp.

    eVAPP  – BE: EVapp is a smartphone-application that in case of an emergency mobilizes medically trained volunteers to overlap the time between the occurrence of an emergency and the arrival of the emergency services.
