News from HOMER strategic project

 

In May was organized at the same time in six regions HACK4MED, HOMER project’s Hackathon. During two days, thirty applications using open data were presented.

 

 

 

 

HOMER Open Data Award Ceremony took place in Turin on the 9th and 10th of July. Montenegro team won the competition with its application called Geostep that proposes to explore a new city through a treasure hunt. The mobile application suggests touristic sites based on users' location and interest. Once there, user can access a virtual tour guide by scanning QR codes.

The project won also the opportunity to access the 2015 Future Everything Festival in Manchester. 

 

La Stampa published an article on HACK4MED with a promo video of Geostep application. Click and find it HERE

 

 

 

Join HOMER Federation!

 

What really defines HOMER project is the creation of a Federation of Open Data portal, aiming at sharing common datasets through the creation of a searchable federated index of metadata of all the Open Data Portals.

 

13000 portals are already classified which represents around 4000 datasets related to five MED strategic domains: agriculture, energy, environment, culture and tourism. 

 

HOMER Federation is also conceived as potentially open to other stakeholders who will be free to conduct their own Open Data initiative independently of the HOMER project. This is the case for OpenDai project (Competitiveness and Innovation framework Programme) who is now inside the Homer Federation, providing 11 APIs.

 

 

A connected project

 

HOMER project uses actively the different channels of the web 2.0 especially the social networks as Facebook and Twitter.

A short video was also made to explain HOMER objectives and the stakes linked to Open Data.
