30 October 2013

Hack@Uni 2013 is a competition of mobile applications for students from universities and secondary school centers, as well as other mobile ecosystem professionals. It aims to give participants the opportunity to know how the Apps world works.

The contest is designed within the European project CIP OpenCities, in which the NeTS research group participates, leading a work package, and its main organisers are the PhD candidates Manuel Palacín and Albert Domingo. During the event, experts from different areas will make ​​presentations on current issues and small workshops which will explain how to create Apps with different technologies, how to promote them or how to create your own startup.

Another key point of the event is to promote the use of public Open Data. For this reason, the Universitat Pompeu Fabra will provide, through the European project Open Cities, an Open Data portal where hackers will be able to extract public data to create mobile applications.

At the end of the day, each participant will present his mobile App in front of the audience and of a jury of experts in various fields. Upon completion of the presentations, the winners will be announced and the prizes will be delivered.
