Event description
Smart City Challenge is a hackathon dedicated to students to use their knowledge to develop smart and sustainable Smart City solutions.

About this event

From Idea to Concept in 3 Days with an Interdisciplinary Team of Students

Through a guided innovation process, you get the chance to develop ideas with the help of your team members to improve tomorrow’s cities and turn them into viable, implementable concepts in only one weekend. You will work together with students from a variety of fields and experienced mentors and Smart City professionals.

Who Can Participate?

Students and entrepreneurs from all over the country are invited to participate. You can either sign up as a team or take part in the team formation and meet new friends and connections. Learn from each other and pitch in front of a panel of professionals. Participation is free, and food and drinks are provided.

What Is A Smart City Solution?

A successful smart city solution is innovative, user-friendly, and contributes to a sustainable world! It both creates and uses data about the city and novel ways of cooperation to improve the city and the lives of its inhabitants and users. The solutions can be anything from digital solutions (websites, games), hardware solutions (gadgets, sensors) to new services (analyses) or workflows.
