The second edition of GovTech extended the selection deadline of six finalist prototypes, by the jury and the public, until September 13. Launched in March this year, the government's ideas competition aims to select prototype projects that meet the United Nations' 17 sustainable development goals.
In order to “invest” in a project, you must create an account on the website through the Citizen Card or with a Mobile Key. Once this step is taken, the user will have to earn badges by inviting friends to the platform, for example, as they will determine how many GovTech currencies they will have to invest in their favorite initiatives.
For now, the project with the most votes is the SIPP – Integrated Process Information System – proposed by Ernesto Sousa and António Costa, with a total of 132,421 invested virtual currencies. Framed within the “Peace, Justice and Effective Institutions” policy area, SIPP is a computer system that promises to assist members of the judiciary, from police to judges, in organizing, handling and presenting evidence.
Following the close of the voting, the publication of the six finalist prototypes, scheduled for September 16th, will be published and the presentation event will be elected, where the three winners will be elected.
Those interested in investing in projects that meet one of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals can do so on the GovTech website.
