September 2019 to February 2020
For the 6th round of the Prototype Fund, we have chosen an additional thematic focus in addition to the four basic pillars of Civic Tech, Data Literacy, Data Security, and Software Infrastructure:
Technology plays an increasingly important role in global challenges such as climate change, species extinction and resource scarcity, but (tech) communities are often not resilient enough in terms of personal, financial and knowledge resources to withstand the coming challenges and help shape the world and the environment in a sustainable way.
We encrypt data using social networks.
We create access to emission data for a broad public.
We lower the entrance threshold for a solar-powered communication structure.
We identify human rights violations in the production of electrical appliances.
We help to implement self-initiated city projects.
We enable community-supported agriculture to plan cultivation in line with their needs.
We enable smaller companies to develop and test financial software.
We are building a fairer and more flexible music licensing system.
We provide a personalized and barrier-free navigation.
We connect different projects of air pollution measurement.
