"Good luck to all participating apps"


You have reached this page because your app has been selected as a SCAH Nominee for the final Gala at Smart City Expo World Congress 2015. An international jury of experts will select 8 out of the submitted apps to come and pitch in Barcelona in November 2015.

Please, only submit your app on this page if you are a SCAH city finalist! SCAH city finalists have been selected in their respective cities. No other app will be accepted.



Smart City App Hack (SCAH) is an initiative by dotopen, fostered by the City of Barcelona with the participation of the world’s leading smart cities to empower citizen communities to create app based solutions for real problems of everyday city life.

SCAH was developed as an open innovation process (city as a platform) that enables going from generic urban problems to specific, usable and sustainable app-based solutions. It does so by proposing opportunity spaces; offering resources, mentorship and support; along with the needed visibility events and communications.
