The 2017 Global City Teams Challenge (GCTC) Expo will bring together over 100 cities and communities around the world in partnership with more than 300 companies, universities, non-profits, and federal government agencies to share and exhibit their smart city projects and the impacts to their communities.
FIWARE will continute be presented in this year´s GCTC with at least 3 booths several speaking slots at the GCTC Expo. More detailed information will be published in the upcoming weeks.
A quick flash back into the GCTC 2016, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has released a special publication on last year’s Global City Teams Challenge (GCTC). This publication describes overview, history, goals and impacts of GCTC in 2014-2016. It is available for download here.
FIWARE is mentioned in IES-City Framework The IoT-Enabled Smart City Framework (IES-City Framework) project. While GCTC focuses on existing deployments by individual teams in a powerful bottom-up activity, IES-City Framework tries to distill from these efforts a set of consensus Pivotal Points of Interoperability (PPI) through a technical analytic activity. This activity is expected to lead to the discovery of common choices made by independent technologists providing goods and services to the smart city and IoT marketplace.
