€400 000 in prizes in Europe’s biggest app challenge
In Europe’s biggest ever app challenge the EU is offering €400 000 in prizes to best new applications that help build smarter cities and smarter businesses.
The only condition of the competition is that app entries should build on the building blocks deployed in the EU’s project to build the core platform of tomorrow’s internet.
50 of these existing building blocks already exist – and are freely available through the FI-WARE Open Innovation Lab for developers to experiment with. They provide generic functions that can be used by a wide range of different applications from all kinds of sectors, like cloud hosting, big data analysis, identity management or the Internet of Things. This app challenge seeks to enable services based on those building blocks.

Anyone can enter. Individuals, small businesses and web entrepreneurs are especially encouraged to enter. You can enter with an idea only, but entrants are encouraged to illustrate their idea with a draft prototype.
