Thessaloniki Innovation Weekend in Urban Transport 28-30 September 2018, Ok!Thess

Do you have an idea about sustainable urban transport that you want to do business with? Design and showcase it; work with your team and win a prize!

The weekend of Innovation in urban transport is the place to search for your team, create the prototype, validate the viability of your idea and listen to advice from experienced people coming from the areas of Transport and Business.  The weekend takes place at OK!Thess

What is foreseen during the weekend…

  • First you will introduce yourself and your idea
  • Then you will see the rest of the presentations
  • Then you will vote for the two most interesting ideas
  • Finally, based on your votes, the teams will be created

You can come with your friends, but you better join separate teams.

Thematic areas

The problem that you want to address must cover issues relating to urban transport and the use of new technologies on the following areas

  1. Smart signs
  2. Smart parking
  3. Smart traffic management
  4. Smart Mobility
  5. Virtual Load Space
  6. Cooperative smart systems on transport
  7. Contemporary interchange transport nodes

During the weekend, you will be asked to create a prototype-that is, a minimally viable product that will represent the way the solution you propose works-that will suit the needs of your target clients. You will have guidance and advice, you will redefine your idea and you may form an entirely new approach.

The weekend of innovation in urban transport is a unique experience that includes:

  • Communication with experienced consultants and people from the business environment
  • A new network of people coming from the transport industry, developers, designers and entrepreneurs willing, like you, to change the world.
  • Fast Internet connection, food and unlimited coffee.
