Next to participating and showcasing the Track & Know project at the BDV PPP summit 2019 in Riga, Track & Know also reached the shortlist of the “success stories awards”, organized by BDVE Project and BDVA. Track & Know partner project Transforming Transport ended up scoring the first prize.
The Track & Know consortium submitted two stories for this contest of which one story, titled ‘‘Sleep well – drive safely – a tale of mobility tracking and Big Data’’, successfully made it to the shortlist. Dr. Angelos Liapis, CEO of Track & Know partner Konnekt-able Technologies Ltd., did a great job presenting the Track & Know success story. His presentation attracted excitement and gained visibility for the entire project. In the end, the story by Transforming Transport took home the award.
