Vip IoT Challenge, organized by Vip mobile and Center for development of Technological Entrepreneurship – ICT Hub, supported by the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Belgrade, Friedrich Naumann Foundation and companies Nokia and MikroElektronika, aim to gather teams that will work on the development of the Narrowband-IoT solutions with expert support in the form of mentoring, equipment and access to laboratories, as well as the first Living Lab in Serbia, open laboratories for testing IoT solutions in real-world conditions.

“The aim of this project is to contribute to the digitization of society. Vip mobile has provided a complete infrastructure for testing and development of solutions that we want to see implemented in Serbia. IoT brings changes in different spheres of life, and the economy is one of those that could endure the most changes. That’s why we are among the first operators in the world to provide users with Narrowband technology. Recognizing the potential and importance of this technology for society, we decided to organize this competition together with our partner, ICT Hub”, said Natali Delić, CTO of Vip mobile.

“With this project, we give the opportunity to innovative teams to realize their ideas that can contribute to the digitization of society. When selecting teams, we will look for a complete Internet of Things (IoT) solutions that include hardware and software components, while we will focus on the application of these solutions in agriculture, traffic, environmental protection and wearables. It is very important to note that the proposed solutions do not have to be of a commercial nature, but have a visible potential for application. In addition, as the main criteria for selection, we will use a clear and precise definition of the problem being solved, innovation, as well as the team’s potential and experience”, said Kosta Andric, director of the Center for development of Technological Entrepreneurship, ICT Hub.

The selected teams will be provided with three months of training and testing in equipped laboratories for development, one of which is Living Lab, where solutions will be tested in real-life conditions, and each team will also receive all the necessary equipment to develop their solutions. For the top three teams, a total prize money of € 10,000 is provided, while the first team expects a trip to Finland.

Team applications will last until September 30th, and more information about the conditions of participation can be found at digitalizujdrustvo.rs.
