BiziParkea! is the winning entry for the `A Park Challenge´ competition held by the Gipuzkoa Science and Technology Park
The BiziParkea! mobile app, designed by Ceit-IK4 technician Jon Fernández, will become a reality having won the second edition of the “A Park Challenge” competition. In addition to providing information about all the services and facilities that the Gipuzkoa Science and Technology Park offers, the winning app will make it possible to promote various initiatives to users via their smartphones, one example being “Running in the Gipuzkoa Science and Technology Park”.
The competition, which was organised by the Gipuzkoa Science and Technology Park, sought ideas that would encourage more activity at the Park's campuses in San Sebastián, Hernani and Eibar. Now it will be the organisers' responsibility to make the app a reality so workers and visitors can download it to their smartphones.
The app fulfils various functions, including: campus locations, public parking locations, information about the Park's services, information about the Park's recreation activities, and its information platform.
Although the app was designed for use in the Gipuzkoa Science and Technology Park, its creator notes that the idea "could be exported to scenarios such as a large shopping centre, an industrial estate, a trade fair or even cities and towns."
