Uni AEGEAN participates in Citadel on the Move Project - Athens Pilot

Citadel on the Move (http://www.citadelonthemove.eu/) aims to make it easier for citizens and application
developers from across Europe to use Open Data to create the type of innovative
mobile applications that they want and need. At present, Open Government Data
is often difficult to access and use by the developer community, let alone the
average citizen. Citadel on
the Move aims to fulfill this need by:

·    Creating formats that make it easier
for local government to release data in usable, interoperable formats

·   Developing Templates that make it easier for
citizens to create mobile applications that can be potentially shared across
Europe creating services that can be used on any device, anytime, anywhere.

Citadel Smart City Vision

DAEM (http://www.daem.gr) is the oldest and
largest computer company in the field of local government operating since 1983.
DAEM started 26 years ago as a company computer for the Municipality of Athens
and was one of the pioneers in the application of new technologies. From then
till now, DAEM has opened horizons transferring the power of information to
citizens’ everyday life and is a modern, dynamic company focusing on IT systems
and infrastucture. This company is responsible for the pilot of the city of
Athens in the Sector of Transportation.

In the first phase of this pilot,
there was a need to create a group of developers called as closed group, who,
according to the available application templates and the available open data,
will develop mobile applications.

A group of 5 MSc students and PhD
Candidates from the University of the Aegean / Information Systems Lab under
the leadership of Yannis Charalabidis, Assistant Professor in Uni Aegean, collaborated
with DAEM and participated in testing of CITADEL pilot templates. After experimenting
with the various application development templates, the ISL team provided
feedback concerning the overall concept,
issues to be resolved, suggestions and ideas on new features.
