This places demands on infrastructure and housing, and demands for expanded public transportation, eco-friendly solutions and digital infrastructure with smart services. At the same time, the region of Stockholm needs to be a leading knowledge center with strong development within the area of innovation and research placed at the absolute forefront. The city continuously opens up more data sources to give citizens and businesses the opportunity to use these to create new smart services that benefit the local population, businesses and even visitors to the city.
This year's competition gives access to more data sources than before and also welcomes international participants. In order to compete, develop an innovation in the form of an app, web service or project plan, based on the city's open data. Three winners will share
