The team won a prize which consists of two free enrollments for the European Innovation Academy.


The team presented the following project: 

  • Typ! (That's Your Place!) allows everyone to find the perfect neighborhood to live in a given area. Users can specify several kinds of preferences or needs. For example, they may wish to live close to a bus stop or a swimming pool or rather live away from a park containing trees which cause allergies. Typ! will therefore highlight on a map different neighborhoods of the city suggesting the most suited to the users.
  • Typ! is a possible application built on top of Erdös, the data aggregation and analytic platform we envision to extract value from the open data generated by public administrations. The Erdös platform will be able to classify thematically open data which are today scattered among different institutions and are not standardized. Erdös will allow policy makers to extend and coordinate the breadth of their actions by searching and discovering new patterns, getting access to clean, well-organized information.
