More than 60 projects eligible for the 1st University of Alicante's Data Portal Ideas Competition

The awards ceremony will take place next Thursday at the Polytechnic School’s Assembly Hall


Alicante, 10 November 2014 

The 1st competition of Portal has been a great success with more than 60 projects submitted, as described by Vice President for Information Technologies, Francisco Macia who said it has attracted considerable interest both within and without the university community.

The panel responsible for evaluating the ideas highlighted the originality and high quality of the proposals and their usefulness to the academic community since they are based on data reuse of the Open Data Portal, as explained by Macia, who added that the next step on this stage will be the announcement of a new competition to develop the best applications. 

The decision of the panel will be made public on Thursday, 13 November, during the awarding ceremony, which will take place at 1.30 pm, in the Assembly Hall of the UA Polytechnic School.

Also, during the awarding ceremony, the upcoming events related to this data reuse initiative at the University of Alicante will be announced, including the essential information to enter the competition.
