Electricity Innovation Challenge

Electricity Innovation Challenge 2015 is an open innovation challenge that will take place in Gothenburg, between the 18th of September and the 21st of October. The purpose is to discover innovations that can contribute to making tomorrow’s bus trips more attractive. The goal is to develop prototypes than can be exposed and tested live in ElectriCity after the challenge. Thus, everything from apps to design of bus stops is interesting and the challenge will involve students as well as professionals from different industries.

Competing teams will among other things have access to new open real-time data from the buses and drawings and plans for the bus stops. This will be made available via the Electricity's innovation platform. Additionally, the challenge offers expert advice and methodological support.
