The LinkedUp Project invites everyone, from researchers and students, to
developers and businesses, to join the 'Veni' competition. This is the
first of three consecutive competitions, and we’re calling for you to
submit a prototype or demo that uses linked and/or open data for
educational purposes.

The total prize fund for ‘Veni’ is 5.000 EUR. However, the attractive
prizes are only one reason to participate in the competition. It is also a
great opportunity to work with the large, documented repository of linked
datasets that the LinkedUp team is putting together. Participants will also
be able to showcase their ideas and solutions to a wide community of
researchers and practitioners:  All accepted demos and prototypes will be
presented at OKCon (http://okcon.org/) in Geneva, on 17 September 2013.

To help participants, the LinkedUp team is providing dedicated support,
how-to's, examples and code recipes, and has a designated developer blog:

We have also curated a number of high profile use cases from organisations
such as the Commonwealth of Learning and Elsevier to serve as inspiration.
