Stockholm Challenge

Back Home Up Next


 

The Stockholm Challenge is a pioneer among ICT awards and networking organizations, dating back to 1994 when the City of Stockholm launched the first competition to challenge the cities in Europe to show their best ICT applications for people and society. So far the Stockholm Challenge has brought together over 5,000 ICT projects from all over the world, many of whom are active in lasting and growing networks.
The over all goal of the Stockholm Challenge is to help counteract social and economic disadvantage, wherever it occurs, by promoting the use of ICT for development. It is mostly targeted towards developing regions and community or social sectors such as gender equality and minorities with the greatest needs.
The Stockholm Challenge is now owned by the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and is a biannual event. It is mainly sponsored by Sida, Ericsson and the City of Stockholm. It is lead by a Steering Group of representatives from both KTH and the main sponsors. All operational activities are carried out by the Secretariat, based at the KTH School of ICT in Kista north of Stockholm.
