Fiware ICT Challenge Vienna

Create a Smart City app in 48 hours, making cities a better place to live in.

Vienna, one of the most innovative cities in the world, has teamed up with the Open & Agile Smart Cities initiative, a network of more than 120 agile and Smart Cities, and the European Commission. Together with the FIWARE Foundation, they are the facilitators of this year’s FIWARE ICT Challenges where the best developers in Europe show their talent in Vienna during 4th to 6th December 2018.

Develop a Smart City App with real-time data from cities and other data sources, using the FIWARE generic component framework. Show it to the world at the ICT 2018 Conference in Vienna – the place to be for more than 6.000 developers, startups and innovation leaders.

Join in today and apply with your idea on how to solve one of the FIWARE ICT challenges which make cities a better place to live in. Your mission is to create a concept and running prototype/MVP during the 48-hour hackathon which will then be presented to a jury.

This is a unique opportunity to take advantage of the FIWARE framework of generic components to develop your solutions in a fast and agile manner. FIWARE standards and APIs are used to build applications and access data in Smart Cities, as well as in the Smart Industry, Agriculture and Energy sectors. Globally, FIWARE is recognized as setting the benchmarks for interoperability in context-aware and data-driven platforms.


The FIWARE Community is an independent Open Community whose members are commited to materialise the FIWARE mission, that is: “to build an open sustainable ecosystem around public, royalty-free and implementation-driven software platform standards that will ease the development of new Smart Applications in multiple sectors”. The FIWARE Community is not only formed by contributors to the technology (the FIWARE platform) but also those who contribute in building the FIWARE ecosystem and making it sustainable over time. As such, individuals and organizations committing relevant resources in FIWARE Lab activities or activities of the FIWARE Accelerator, FIWARE Mundus or FIWARE iHubs programmes are also considered members of the FIWARE community.

Utrecht hosts the first FIWARE Lab of the Netherlands.
