Welcome to Cluster - Crowd!

Cluster-Crowd is a brainstorming platform that taps into the expert knowledge of business- , technology- , ICT- and life science clusters. We are well-connected across Europe and abroad.
Depending on the challenge in question, Cluster-Crowd will initiate a call for ideas within one area of expertise or include different knowledge clusters to initiate cross-innovation.
In cases where the challenge requires the view of the general public, Cluster-Crowd can reach out to a crowd that, up-to-date, includes 15 000 creative minds from all walks of life.

Name your future online service

In October 2012 the association eGov Switzerland launched a project that aims to provide individuals and companies with an online service to safely access  and independently manage their respective data. The user would control, what data are used and where data are used, while  keeping track of info sources and  data sharing. A user-friendly navigation concept would visualize the origin of the centrally stored information and indicate what institutions are authorized to access the data. Only the user would have the authority to release data and influence the flow of information at any time. With this project eGov is reaching  out to users, asking them how they would like to name their future service.

Imagine a parking meter you love

ELMOs (Electromobility Solutions for Cities and Regions), a European Commission project that aims to promote electromobility and electromobility-driven innovation and Parkeon, the World’s leading company in integrated on-street parking management solutions are joining forces to transform the way we experience parking meters.
With the crowd-sourcing initiative “Imagine a parking meter you love” they are reaching out to the general public and ICT clusters, asking them to describe what useful services or applications parking meters should offer in the future not only to motorists but also to anyone in the street.
The partners believe that parking terminals can play a bigger role in the urban everyday life as they are now being equipped with color screens and connected to the 3G network providing more interactivity to the users.
