    Participate and win up to 50K!

    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. The city is becoming increasingly smart. How can we benefit from this and make the internet of things work for us? Can we come up with great solutions to augment our surroundings, making the city more exciting, safe and a seamless extension of our own existence?

    Don't hesitate, register now to participate!
