Hackathon4Future – a new opportunity for young innovators

Applications are open for Hackathon4Future, an international project aimed at supporting young innovators and setting a strong base for startup development!

Hackathon4Future is an online event organized on May 15 and 16, participation is completely free, and applications are open until May 10, via the following form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeymjEPhsSvBIFxCdWpr6Dzf8aGrQEpN4hOPUMqiebRqL7fLA/viewform

The whole project is the result of cooperation between different European universities, incubators, but also three EIT communities, and enthusiastic individuals who want to help the development of innovative entrepreneurship in Europe.

Innovators and students from different fields (natural sciences, IT, engineering, economics, law, social sciences) can apply for participation, as part of already formed teams that are at the beginning of developing a business idea, but individuals can also apply who will, before the event, be matched with other students and become part of the team.

Teams will work to design solutions for 3 challenges:

  1. Floating vests for people with reduced mobility;
  2. Smart city applications for the elderly;
  3. Tech to prevent and address gender-based violence.

This is a great opportunity for young innovators, who will work on solving real problems, collaborate with experienced mentors and EIT representatives, and also meet colleagues from universities across Europe. The best teams will get the opportunity to apply for an international startup support program and continue working on the development of their innovative solutions.

Sign up, and good luck!
