WeLive project: the winners of the idea contest for a smarter Trento have been awarded
The nine winners of the idea contest linked to the WeLive European project have been awarded.
At the end of this phase, for each winning idea, more detailed information about individual features that make up the service and the overall design of the app will be released. All these requirements will be the starting point for the next phase, i.e. the development phase. This morning, the nine winners of the WeLive European project ideas contest were officially awarded at Palazzo Geremia.
Here are their names, with the ideas that have received the well-deserved recognition and on whose basis the project continues to build in order to make Trento an increasingly smart city:
Daniele Miorandi (PA Guide – The Navigator of the Public Administration)
Alberto Martinelli (Public and Online Associations Spaces)
Paolo Padoan (Trentorienta, the new app)
Christian Spada (BST Bike Sharing Trento and BiblioApp)
Enrico De Guidi (Routing and delay services)
Michele Dalla Torre (App Trento road cleaning: possible improvements) Valentina Neri (Family Friendly App)
Alessandro Turcato (ProntoOrto)
The jury, made up by Giacomo Fioroni, Smart City project manager for the City of Trento, Marco Pistore, representative of the WeLive Consortium and Head of the Smart Community team at Fondazione Bruno Kessler, and Gabriele Zacco, expert in the creation of technology solutions and Technology Manager at Fondazione Bruno Kessler, had examined, in the past few months, the thirty-seven ideas received, selected eighteen and awarded nine.
The award ceremony was the occasion to meet all the winners and to define with them the ways in which the ideas presented will be refined, through dialogue, using the platform created by the project.
At the end of this phase, for each winning idea, more detailed information about individual features that make up the service and the overall design of the app will be released. All these requirements will be the starting point for the next phase, i.e. the development phase.
In fact, some of these ideas will be turned into real apps thanks to an additional activity included the project, which provides for their development and implementation during the summer in a summer camp organized by Fondazione Bruno Kessler.
The protagonists will be high school students who, supported by Fbk researchers and local government employees, will learn how to build mobile apps and will challenge themselves in a real competition to make the best app among the winners, completing the Co-design and co-development cycle of innovative services for our city, which is the heart of the WeLive European project.
