+Our goal is to understand the role of technology, the role of technology makers
+in the ecosystem and determine key dimensions of innovation. To gain that understanding
+we are going to collect and index data that will visualize the creativity, diversity and
+internationality of the mobile application cluster and will map the driving forces of the
+App Making Industry. With our findings we want to tackle the lack of empirical data on how
+technology and grassroots initiatives can steer innovation.
+We expect that in December 2012, we will have created an inventory of data to showcase the
+dynamics of the Industry and examples of best practices. That kind of knowledge will be beneficial
+for the City, the stakeholders and the communities.
