A New Round of Open Data Challenges

April 16, 2019

United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in partnership with Office for IT and e-Government announce Open Data Challenge in order to solicitate innovative ideas, based on the open data released by the public institutions and available on the National Open Data Portal (www.data.gov.rs).

We invite all interested parties, especially startups, civil society, small and medium enterprises, to apply and offer innovative solutions for different societal problems, in order to provide an enabling environment for data-based decision making and innovative services for citizens. Additionally, apart from using the available open government data, applicants are encouraged to plan the collection and opening of new datasets, or to incorporate crowdsourcing data collection.

We announce three challenges:

  1. Our Environment and Us, based on the data of the Serbian Environmental Protection Agency;
  2. Citizen Experience, based on the data related to justice, culture and civil society;
  3. Open Data for Business, allowing applicants to envisage new business models based on open data.

We will award three ideas, one per each challenge. Maximum amount for development of the winning solutions is USD 10.000,00 per solution. The final amount will be negotiated with the winners, depending on the complexity of the proposed solution, as well as the estimated market value.
