Create your future by hacking society´s main challenges. We solve challenges that normally stay behind closed doors or that can’t be solved by others. Think of noise pollution in inner cities, for example, or renovating a large number of bridges at the same time.
Your main contribution will be passion for the challenge. During the hackathon you will work with a multidisciplinary team to solve the challenge. In order to do so, we will teach you how to apply ´design thinking´, derived from the perspective of nature. In other words: what solutions does nature has to offer, and how can we translate these solutions into usable applications? (Biomimicry)
