MoMo Athens – April 8th – mHealth Linking 3 Cities

We’ve said it before and we’ll repeat it one more time. mHealth and all its derivatives are hot in the mobile sector. Everyone is interested in the future of mHealth, apps, ideas, inventions, who will benefit and how the ecosystem will get over all the obvious obstacles the sector beholds. The stakeholders are many… Pharmaceuticals, Doctors, Hospitals, Patients, Organisations and the barriers even more…policies, FDA, data protection  and so on.


Linking 3 Cities

There is a shift. Something is happening in Greece; tech savvy medical professionals are trying to make a change or at least open up a conversation on the eHealth status in Greece. A conversation we want to listen in to. So next Monday, 8th of April 2013 we will be linking live with #opnHealth hosts TEDxNijmegen. MoMoAth will be hosting it’s own simulcast with Nijmegen for the TEDx and a second link with Thessaloniki, from 9:00 am in the morning till dawn.

The speaker line up from both cities is very impressive; TEDxNijmegen has planned over 20 speakers, while #opnHealth has signed on a few important players in Greece. George Dafoulas is an old acquaintance to MoMoAth, from when he presented his app during our last mHealth event. So, is Nikos Papachristou a speaker, in the previously mentioned event, and co-organiser for the #opnHealth event in Thessaloniki. Let’s not also forget Kathy Apostolidis who supports MoMoAth and is an patient rights advocate.

So join us next Monday at coLab Workspace Petraki 28, Athens 1st Floor, after 9am. It’s an all day event, so you’re welcome to join during the day. We will watch the simulcasts and chat over the topic of  mHealth.


Meanwhile, we will have a little ‘mHealth’ treat for our visitors by supporting company Vidavo. They’ll be there with their telemonitoring devices to measure your blood pressure and other metrics and show you what the company is doing over the mobile.

Sign up here MoMoAth listens in: #opnHealth meets TEDxNijmegen. Limited seats. 

MoMo Athens – Oct. 22nd – Cross Screen Dev. Intl. Competition

We’re back and ready to go further than the mobile!

Keeping up with trends in mobile development, MoMoAth will be diving into the cross-screen development vertical. Mobiles, tablets, Screens, TVs…you name it, we’ll have it! Our next event is planned for the 22nd of October. We will be announcing speakers and venue quite soon but meanwhile we have an international competition for you with a huge interest from many developers.

It’s the ‘webinos rewards creative cross-screen apps‘ competition and if you want to enter, win one of the cool prizes and get known outside your country, don’t hesitate to take part. After our last mHealth competition which opened up the doors to international competitor participation with a final winner from France, we’re happy to see more intl. competitions taking place right here in Athens!

So here’s the announcement from webinos, along with details on entering the competition. The final show will go down, here, in Athens on the 22/10/2012 with an outstanding judging panel from Samsung, BMW, Sony Mobile, W3C, Deutsche Telekom. Quite a challenge and we’re looking forward to seeing some state of the art applications taking part.

webinos rewards creative cross-screen apps
Berlin, August 22 – Cool apps and cool prizes: the European research project webinos is holding a competition for cross-device applications. The best proposals will proceed to the finals in Athens.

Using a smart phone to zap through the television channels or using a tablet PC to configure the car system – the webinos technology allows for cross-screen services, i.e. web apps that can be used by devices to jointly access media, data, and functions safely. With the new developer platform, the international webinos project offers free access to the necessary tools. Particularly creative apps will now be rewarded: the webinos consortium is holding a developer competition. The best entries will have the chance to receive great publicity, meet the webinos partners & win “cross-screen prizes”: from Android-on-a-USB-stick to state-of-the-art smart phones and tablets.

Event with international experts
A webinos jury of domain experts will select up to ten best ideas and the announcement of the finalists is scheduled for October 8th. The finalists will get the chance to present their apps in the next Mobile Monday Athens “Cross-screen apps” themed event which is scheduled for October 22nd. The winners will be voted by the audience. The precondition for participating to the competition is that the apps are using the webinos platform and APIs and integrate functionality of more than one devices – i.e. that the apps are cross-screen. Further information about the competition, the prizes, the terms and conditions and how to participate are available at: http://webinos.org/appchallenge. Downloads & Information about developing on webinos platform can be found at: https://developer.webinos.org/. Information about the Mobile Monday Athens event series: http://momoath.com

Our third Mobile Monday Athens event, themed around mHealth, is now at an end. The event (April 25 @ Eugenides Foundation) played host to four speakers, who discusses the mHealth sector and the opportunities emerging in this innovative market, as well as a competition for mHealth apps.

The event was highly successful, with over 120 people attending and nearly 50 people watching it online, via live streaming! So, we’d like to thank you all; those who attended – in person or online – as well as the participants, who joined our competition and presented their apps! Also, a big thanks to the event sponsor, SAP Hellas, as well as StartersFund – who supported the app competition.

App Competition

During the competition, our participants presented their ideas – one participant had come all the way from France to attend the competition, while another presented his app online, via Skype! The competition was crowdfunded, i.e. each member of the audience was given 500 Mobile Money (our own version of the Euro – see here) and asked to vote for whomever of the contestants he/she felt had the best ideas! Our audience could spread their money on multiple apps, put it all on a single app or just keep them to themselves (you know who you are!!).

So – here are the winners of the competition, as voted by our audience (ranked in terms of Mobile Money received):

1. DiaLog, by Gangadhar Sulkunte – France (Twitterwebsite)
DiaLog is an app for users suffering from Type 2 Diabetes and provides a guide to the symptoms and treatments.

MoMo Athens – April 25th – Mobile Health App Competition

The MoMo Athens team is fervently preparing for the upcoming event – themed around Mobile Health. The upcoming event will be held on April 25th – location yet to be determined.

As in the previous event, we’ll be hosting an app competition – the twist is that we’re looking for mHealth apps. We feel that this is an underdeveloped sector that will play a critical role in the mobile industry in the years to come – and we’re interested in introducing this sector to the Greek audience.

So – if you’re interested in participating in the competition, start working on an idea. We’ve created a page with all sorts of resources on the topic that should help you come up with some great ideas on Mobile Health and how to make a meaningful contribution to the field.
We’ll start accepting submissions just 2 weeks before the event, so you should be prepared!

We’re also looking for more sponsors for the event – send us an email at hello (at) momoath.com if you’re interested.
