Open Call 1 Description


CALL 1: PROPOSAL SUBMISSION – 1st of October to 30th of November 2014
Participants are called to submit a mock-up design and project plan, which will be evaluated by external reviewers 15 teams within four hubs will be selected to proceed and rewarded with EUR 10.000.

A design competition is organised of which the result, a mock-up design, is submitted for evaluation. The teams also need to submit a project plan (Prototype Plan)  describing how they will bring the mock-up to a functioning prototype with a strong business case over the course of 8 months. The submissions (mock-up designs, and Prototype Plans) are evaluated by external reviewers.

The overall selection criteria are following.
A) Business potential (weight 50%)
– Anticipated market demand of the prototype
– Competitive advantage of the prototype
– Scalability and growth potential of the prototype
– Business acumen of the team
B) Technological excellence (weight 20%)
– Innovativeness of mock-up design
– Creativity & quality of usage of SEs and GEs in proposed prototype
– Technical soundness of proposed prototype
– Quality of the project plan
– Technical excellence of the team
C) FIWARE adoption and acceleration (weight 30%)
– Anticipated impact of FIWARE technologies funding on growth
– Synergies and fit with FIWARE technologies programme

You can also add short presentation (max 5 slides) or short video (2 minutes) to help us to understand your idea.

PARTICIPANT SELECTION – 16th – 17th December
The best 120 of the evaluated teams (30 by each hub) are selected to the pitching and final selection events organized by the hubs. Each team will have 5 minutes pitch on 16th December. On next day the selected 15 teams will get the feedback and coaching from the selection board members.

HALF-WAY CHECK-UP – April 2015
At this stage, the 60 prototype teams are checked on progress against the milestones they projected in their approved Prototype Plans. Each team who is passing the check-up will be rewarded EUR 15.000.

END OF OPEN CALL 1 – September 2015
At the end of the prototype stage, the teams  are evaluated on two aspects: the delivery of a prototype and a lightweight final report describing the prototype, how it relates to the initially projected prototype, and the design decisions in between.  If the team succeeds they will be rewarded EUR 25.000.
