If you and your team work on Financial Transparency and the EU on this day, you can also submit you App at the App competition from the Transparency Camp EU.

App Competition

This month European developers can take part in the
TransparencyCamp App Competition. This competition challenges European
developers to build apps that make innovative use of EU open data or
open up the black box of EU decision-making. Deadline for submission
is May 1.

Winning the App Competition will get you to the Transparency
Camp in Washington DC, the 2nd and 3d price will be rewarded with a
special transparency trip to Brussels. In Brussels you will get a tour
of the European Parliament and get the chance to pitch your app for a
select group of data managers of European institutions. The winners
will be announced on June 1 at the very first Transparency Camp Europe
in Amsterdam.

Would you like to work with at least one European dataset and do you
think you can build a creative app that will make Europe more
accountable, interactive and transparent? If so, you should definitely
join the App Competition.

You can find more information about the competition on our website:

You can come join us on Monday the 2nd of May with your project and work on it and submit it @Spektrum or submit it by yourself on the first of May.

Note: the deadline is 1st of May!!
