Smart City Open Data Challenge
The City of Mississauga is hosting a Smart City Open Data Challenge to continue to foster open data, community engagement, and research during this ‘new normal’.
The Smart City Open Data Challenge will be hosted by the City Of Mississauga’s Smart City team and will be completely virtual. The challenge is open to high school and higher education students who have an interest in data, exploring data and learning from data.
