Get ready: AI4Cities Bootcamp

Do you have innovative and/or state-of-the-art AI solutions related to energy or mobility? Want to reach six big European cities as possible customers? Want to grow your understanding of the public procurement application process and learn the best tricks? Want to get feedback about your solution before the actual procurement? Want to write your best public procurement application ever? Join Get ready: Ai4Cities Bootcamp! Starting 24.08.2020. 

Get ready: AI4Cities Bootcamp is organised by AI4Cities and Industryhack. This participation coaching/bootcamp is directed to all interested startups, SMEs and bigger companies who are both able to design innovative solutions applying the use of AI and motivated to participate in the pre-commercial procurement (PCP) process

The Get ready: AI4Cities Bootcamp will be organised as the first step or phase 0 of the PCP process to coach motivated participants to write their best applications yet for upcoming tender. The aim of the bootcamp is to coach and spar participating teams about their preliminary solution ideas and application process. During Phase 0 feedback of the tender qualifications will be collected, so participants will have an opportunity to impact on the content of the tender. More information about Phase 0 can be found here

Are you interested? Applications to Get ready: AI4Cities Bootcamp will start on 24.8.2020. The application form is here

Who can apply?

Apply with a team of 2-3 people, ideally combining diverse skills and backgrounds in the team. Teams have to represent a company. All applications will be reviewed after the deadline and all applicants will be informed. Number of teams to be selected in each of the challenges (energy and mobility) will be announced.

If you want to learn more about the Bootcamp, join the Info Webinar (3 September).

If you are interested in participating in the Bootcamp, but don't have a team, you can participate in the Matchmaking event. Industryhack will organise two matchmaking events: one before co-creation days and one before request of tenders

Participation to this Bootcamp is free. The teams are expected to work full-time on the coaching/sparring during the co-creation day (1 day). Teams will have several mentoring sessions throughout the day. Teams will be asked for feedback and teams can get written feedback to their solution.

In January the final Coaching webinar will be organised, where teams have opportunities to ask about the upcoming tender. Participating in the webinar is voluntary but highly recommended.
