FIWARE presence at ICT Lisbon 2015

Oct 29, 2015Opportunities

“Innovate, Connect, Transform”, that is the motto of ICT, the meeting point organized by the European Commission that, from the 20th to the 22nd of October, gathered projects, institutions and public-private partnerships, among many others, in Lisbon (Portugal). FIWARE attended that event with a stand that summarized the philosophy that has allowed us to be the support of so many stories, as the ones in CreatiFI or those of Smart Agrifood. This philosophy, as it was collected in our stand, is based on the concepts of innovation, openness, smartness, context-awareness, ecosystem and standardization.

In our stand, participants could not only find our new interactive map, in which you can see all the information about all the SMEs belonging to FIWARE, and also our iHubs or our accelerators. But apart from that, the team of Tobyrich also attended the event, where they showed their drones and planes, which could be controlled from your personal mobile phone. When the European Commissioner Günther Oettinger visited the stand, he was very impressed by these planes and how FIWARE had helped Tobyrich develop their project.

The Smart Urban Farming Challenge

During ICT 2015, the Smart Urban Farming Challenge took place. As we already said in a blog post more than a month ago, it was “one of the FIWARE accelerators (FRACTALS)” which “presented the Smart Urban Farming Challenge, encouraging web developers to create innovative services and solutions addressing the challenges in urban farming.”

This challenge distributed a total amount of 49,000 € among its winners, in a ceremony that took place at the end of ICT 2015. Do you want to learn more about its winners? Then have a look at what they said about FIWARE!
