The Innovation Challenge

The Innovation Challenge

Open Data is hot! European cities have an overwhelming amount of data. They also have a huge amount of problems along with heavy budget restrictions.
The Open cities project calls for developers to collaboratively brainstorm in our Open Data Forum about these two Open Data problems:
 
1. Which City Data should be opened first (not already opened)? 

2. Give ideas for Open data apps and ways to monetize them
