This hackathon is organised in the context of third phase of SELECT for Cities project, where IoE-based platforms are being validated in Helsinki and Antwerp. City Enabler is a platform that allows urban service providers (public and private) and the local Governments to actively collaborate in exploiting urban data. It serves as a single entry point for data, provides data visualization and analysis and creates opportunities for development of new city services.
