Join the Hackathon in Liepaja!
Can you create solutions using space technology to help strengthen Europe’s security? The 5th CASSINI Hackathon is open for entries.
Be inspired by experts, learn to access data from Copernicus, EGNOS and Galileo, and connect with a team to build your solution. There are three challenges on the theme of defence and security:
- Enabling cross-terrain mobility
- Making the seas more secure
- Protecting our critical infrastructure
Sharing borders with Russia and Belarus, Latvia’s cross-terrain mobility is a key concern. At the Hackathon you’ll be invited to explore EU space data and develop innovative new solutions to help protect it. Impact Hub is an active participant in the Latvian space ecosystem: this is your opportunity to connect with professionals and develop an exciting new venture.
So, what are you waiting for? Join us in Liepaja between Friday 24th and Sunday 26th of March. All you need is an interest in space technology – and the motivation to build a winning idea. There are local and international prizes for the best teams… giving the winners the support they need to launch their ventures!
Impact Hub’s expert judging panel will choose three winners to receive €4,000 of business mentoring and support.
First prize: €2500; marketing materials worth €200 from Digital marketing factory.
Second prize: €1000 for further development.
Third prize: €500 for further development.
