The M-Sec online contest intends to be a space in which developers, entrepreneurs, startups, data scientists, university students, the research community and persons interested in making their city a better place can gather to develop, in a collaborative and interdisciplinary way, a business idea that makes our cities more efficient, intelligent, sustainable, and secure.
Participants must be, at least, a team of 3 members and put together a business idea that addresses a city challenge from Satander (Spain) or Fujisawa (Japan) and uses the M-Sec framework as a security and privacy element of that business case. The main goal is to leverage the M-Sec framework and, at the same time, provide other business models and use cases where M-Sec can be used, to make cities smarter and more cyber secure.
The Online Contest will take place between 6 and 10 September 2021. It is a completely free event in which teams are expected to receive support in the design and development of their new and early-stage business ideas, helping them better prepare to present the idea to a panel of international experts, who will decide the top 3 winners of each city challenge.
Apply with your business idea by 26 August 5pm CET/Brussels Time as only the 1st 20 eligible teams who submit an application will be selected.
