Aporta Challenge is open for applications!
The Spanish national open data portal has opened the call for the 4th edition of the yearly Aporta Challenge. This competition seeks to identify and recognise new ideas and prototypes that make a specific sector more effective and efficient, by using open data and data intelligence. This year’s focus is on the health and well-being sector.
Do you have an idea for an open data solution that will support citizens in forming and maintaining healthy habits? Improve wellness outcomes and the patient’s experience? Increase public health and epidemiological surveillance capacities? Optimise the skills of healthcare professionals? Or promote research to help discover healthy patterns and new treatments? Then you can apply! Every individual, team or company located in the EU can submit their proposal until 15 February.
The proposal must make use of at least one open data set from a public body (national or international) and identify new opportunities to capture, analyse and use data intelligence to improve health and well-being. If your idea is selected, you get the opportunity to develop your prototype and present it to the members of the jury. The winner stands to win €5.000!
