7 Challenges for a smarter city
June 22-30, 2018
What is it?
When and where?
The challenges will be presented on June 22nd followed by a hackathon on Friday 29th & Saturday 30th June, 2018 at Kraftwerk.
We gathered six real needs of different departments of the City of Zurich that could be solved with LoRaWAN and civic tech.
There will be as well an open challenge: if you don’t feel like building any of the other challenges, you are free to combine all available elements to create innovative solutions for the city!
