AGENDA     LIVE STREAMING

Evento Multisede FIWARE

15th, 16th and 17th of October 2014

Seville – Valencia – Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

The Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism (MINETUR), following the guidelines of the European Commission, is fostering the implementation of the Internet of the Future. For that purpose, events have been prepared to show the potential of the platform FIWARE, which may be used for Smart Cities and industrial processes

The 15th, 16th and 17th of October, a multi-site event organized by FIWARE will take place in the cities of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Seville and Valencia, thus following the event that took place last year in Santander.

This event will focus on the FIWARE Accelerator Programme, through which the European Commission destines 80 million euros to SMEs and entrepreneurs developing innovative services thanks to this platform. Start-up accelerators with a Spanish presence, entities which are in charge of distributing the funds, will be especially highlighted in these events.

During these days, participants will be informed about the necessary requirements to access current and future calls, will attend conferences and showcases to witness FIWARE’s potential and will discover the different funding possibilities.

To enhance knowledge of FIWARE, participants can access a laboratory open to innovation (FIWARE Lab – lab.fiware.org), which is constantly updated with open data from Smart Cities.

Furthermore, each city will add specific training and entrepreneurial activities to the agenda:

  • Startup Weekend Valencia: during the weekend after the event (17th, 18th and 19th of October). It will gather entrepreneurs with different skills to work together to transform a technological idea into a startup. It also allows to network with specialized mentors and get their advice, and to win awards.
     
  • Final round of FIWARE challenges for developers (Seville and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria): from the 13th to the 17th of October. Seville will hold the “Smart Society” challenge, which aims to find the most beneficial apps for society, in terms of education, health care and social inclusion, so that a better society with better living conditions can be built. On the other hand, Las Palmas will hold the “FIWARE Excellence” challenge, for projects developed with FIWARE on any domain. These two events will distribute a total amount of 350,000 € in prizes and will hold about 40 teams from different countries.
