Creating prize-winning apps with EQLS data / Eurofound News, September 2015

Earlier in 2015, Eurofound teamed up with the UK Data Service to make available the full dataset of the Agency’s European Quality of Life Survey (from 2007 and 2011). Following on from this, developer community has launched a competition for the best mobile application using the data, entrants being required to submit a video demonstrating their app. There are a number of prizes, including a first prize of GBP 7,500 (around €10,300). The deadline for entry is 30 September 2015; winners will be announced on 30 October. The eight judges include leading figures in open data, technology companies, and app development, as well as Tadas Leončikas of Eurofound. They will assess entries based on their level of innovation, potential impact, production quality, and how the data can be paired up with other sources. For more on the competition, visit
