ZeroAtlas - Discover & chat with green companies nearby
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 300 000|
|Project duration||December 2017 - September 2018|
Purpose and goal
The ZeroAtlas project for phase 1 was a success in creating a demo app for a sustainable campus at Chalmers, as well as creating a new green city center in Gothenburg with sustainable companies.
Expected results and effects
The demo app got visibility and we could engage students, faculty & visitors to find sustainable companies & places with our tests. New needs were verified thanks to user interviews with companies, students & other stakeholders. With the new needs being discovered, the ZeroAtlas app will also focus now on the recruitment of students, job seekers, the discovery of impact investors, sustainable conferences & events in the app with meeting points. These meeting points will allow you to chat in real-time & book effective meetings with each other.
Planned approach and implementation
AP1 - User-tests with exhibitors of Ekocentrum, i.e. sustainable companies were completed. AP2 - The first version of the internal chatbots were created. AP3 - The demo app was created with real-time chat, profile, map for Five Star Campus & user-tests were held with students & faculty. AP4 - Payment system & statistics were implemented & will be continued further with the development of ZeroAtlas in phase 2. Thanks to the user-tests we verified the new need to find conferences, events, investors, students & talent. Booking meetings with them is the most important need for green companies.
