Europe needs innovative ideas to turn the refugee crisis into the opportunity it is. Therefore, we invite all startups of the FIWARE family and beyond to apply with their solutions for a specific existing challenge. Following the Chinese idiom:
“When the winds of change blow, some people build walls, but we build windmills.”
The vision is to build one open data platform for refugees, volunteers, companies and others that offers a central portal with several service modules. The platform is free to use, but specific services can be monetized. So please look through the categories described below and apply with your solution to help managing the refugee challenge all over Europe.
Next to great solutions, we need a great UI design, an innovative crowdfunding campaign and good social implementation strategy. Therefore, we are also looking for creative people with great concepts and ideas, who would like to support our initiative and build the interface between technology and the people that should use it.
