What is the Dashboard Challenge?

The Dashboard Challenge 2024 is an initiative of the "Dados ao Serviço de Lisboa" partnership, promoted by the Lisbon City Council (CML), NOVA IMS, and the Instituto Superior de Engenharia de Lisboa (ISEL).

This challenge aims to stimulate the creation of knowledge about the city of Lisbon, taking advantage of the data available on the Lisboa Aberta portal and the capabilities of data analysis and information visualization, through dashboards built by university students.

The dashboards to be developed should represent innovative ideas that translate into creative visualizations that help improve knowledge about the city of Lisbon.


  • Promote data literacy through the involvement of youth and universities;
  • Develop data-driven approaches to support the planning and management of the municipality of Lisbon, based on the concept of smart and sustainable cities;
  • Value the use of open data, 
  • Utilize data and Information Technologies (IT) to promote factual knowledge.


  • The contest is open to students enrolled in the 1st cycle of higher education during the academic year 2023/24;
  • The dashboards can be presented individually or by teams of up to three members;
