The Privacy via IT Security app competition deadline for submission of the proposal value proposition passed as the New Year was welcomed across Europe last Friday. A considerable number of highly innovative proposals waere received, making the jury’s task of selecting the three winning apps very challenging. The three winning competitors will attend the award ceremony and host a booth at Scale 11 at CeBIT 2016. Proposals came from many countries throughout Europe, and the diversity of the ideas received is very encouraging. Regardless of whether their application will be successful in the competition or not, we would like to thank all participants for their efforts so far.
In terms of next steps, all applications are currently undergoing eligibility assessments. This will be followed by an invitation for further development and final submission in February. Final results will be publicly announced by the judges at the award ceremony. The winning proposals will be informed as soon as decisions have been made.
