MoTeCH is part of service delivery for maternal health at Antenatal Care. It has two complementary applications: A Mobile-Midwife Application and a Nurse Application. Mobile-Midwife targets pregnant clients with educational and actionable messages tailored to their stages in pregnancy. Couples can both access MoTeCH messages via SMS (text) or voice in the local dialect or English. Clients decide the time of day and frequency at which messages are delivered. With Mobile-Midwife there are no missed events; When a client misses a call she only gives the system a missed call or “flash” to request her messages The Nurse Application is aligned to simplified paper registers to collect clinical information. The midwife enters patient encounters on a simple mobile phone and electronically records care given to clients. This enables easy identification of both mothers and infants and saves time collating information to generate monthly reports, alerts and reminders for clients that need care.

Jumieges 3d is a new and innovative way of visiting the Abbey. Today, the nicest ruin in France, as Victor Hugo said, is open to the public. Highly romantic as a ruin, it is quite hard to imagine the greatness and impressive size of the site before its destruction during the French revolution. Jumieges 3D experience proposes to the public a new spectacular way of visiting the site: the opportunity to superimpose thanks to an iPad the abbey as it was in 5 different periods of its construction, thanks to augmented reality. Mobile augmented reality, on site or through a free of charge app, on mobiles and tablets, drive the visitor into the glorious past of the Abbey, from the 9th to the 18th Century, on 4 different Points of Interest, the 3d reconstitution being linked to more classical audio or video cultural content. This application, on place since September 2012, has already been downloaded thousands of time and meets a great succes on site.
Lobbyplag is a discovery and mapping tool for the interference of lobbyists with lawmaking. Lobbyplag.eu is a citizens discovery platform for the lawmaking process. Using a crowdsourced process, change proposals made by lobbying groups are mapped to actual changes in the text of upcoming legislation - and to the lawmakers who propose them. As Wired UK says about us: “LobbyPlag is designed to get the word out, get the public thinking about who writes laws that will remain for decades (and how), and to encourage the public to help out with the mammoth task of analysing more documents for comparisons. (...) LobbyPlag is there to help avoid any bad choices being made that will be permanently be written into the word of the law.”
WHATCHADO is a combination of storytelling handbook and standardized format of short films on real-life job descriptions that we developed and refined in the past years in Vienna, Austria. It was initiated and founded by former class fellows and longtime friends who loved to probe people on their lives and backgrounds. That is why we started to develop WHATCHADO and eventually went public in 2012. WHATCHADO was created by young people for young people. We are more than 20 people originating from 13 different countries and we deliver career information that matters. We understand today’s generation as we belong to them. We experienced on our own the great misery in pursing a career that does not match one’s interests and likings before. Hence, we give users a real chance to find their calling. In 2013 we have been even appointed European Youth Ambassador for life.
