The Challenge Academy is a platform that facilitates contact between Higher Education Institutions / Research Centres and Organizations (public, private nad non-profit making). We believe that crowdsourcing is an effective way of finding creative solutions to address the problems of organizations, with less investment, either monetary or time, in selecting experts who can respond to their needs. Here you can get solutions from groups of people, from diferrent countries and areas, that work together to improve the lives of organizations. This platform is distinguished from others by the direct involvement of HEIs and Research Centres that will use as an educational tool, as well as adaptation of the research developed in the real problems of the Organizations. The solvers are students, teachers, researchers and alumni of HEI and associated Research Centres, who demonstrate the accuracy and quality in teaching/research. Organizations choosing this platform also have the assurance that sponses to the challenge presented are supervised by a specialist (if this is specified in the solver profile).

The iCity project aims at making a step forward in the co-creation of services of public interest by third parties (developers, small and medium enterprises,…) that are pushing for their space as service providers in the urban spaces of Smart Cities. The project intends to develop and deploy an approach to allow these interested parties to create, deploy, operate and exploit services based in the use of available public information, digital assets and infrastructures in cities.
IES Cities goal is to generate a fully validated urban apps enabling platform. Such platform, will be made available for any council willing to promote their citizens' and companies' innovation open data, so that they can give place to a urban apps ecosystem that exploits both city's provided data, through open data repositories, and user-generated data provided by the citizens themselves by interacting with their city by means of IES Cities services.
Scope of the OPEN CITIES project is to improve the knowledge and the use of innovative management systems in the public sector, through the experimentation of researches on the territory using “Future Internet” services for the smart cities.
