DINAPSIS Open Challenge


What was the 3rd Open Challenge like?

In November 2023, the third Dinapsis Open Challenge took place in Benidorm, an event focused on green infrastructures, urban resilience to climate change, tourist flows management and nature-based solutions. (NBS).

Out of 2,200 startups that were identified, 34 applied and only 5 reached the final phase. At this stage, the startups presented their projects before a jury during the so-called Demo Day.

In this edition, two categories were identified among the participants, which led the jury to award two prizes: the first to the category of urban resilience to climate change and the second to the category of tourist flows management.

The Dinapsis Open Challenge is consolidated as a key event in promoting innovative ideas and sustainable solutions. These selected startups represent the talent and creativity needed to address current and future challenges in the field of green infrastructure and responsible tourism.
