Join the Hackathon in Cluj!
Interested in creating solutions using EU space technology to support international development and humanitarian aid? The 6th CASSINI Hackathon is open for entries. This is your chance to explore important global challenges from a new perspective with people from all backgrounds!
Find inspiration from experts, and gain the know-how to utilise data from Copernicus, satellite positioning and navigation services from Galileo & EGNOS. Embark with your team on one of three challenges centred around the theme of international development and humanitarian aid:
- Supporting sustainable infrastructure development
- Strengthening food security & access to clean water
- Understanding and forecasting forced migration
Our Romanian local organiser, ROTSA, specialises in supporting and promoting innovative new ventures. The Romanian Tech Startups Association has organised several challenges and hackathons and will host this edition at ClujHub, the city’s largest coworking space. It’s an exciting opportunity to mingle with established and aspiring entrepreneurs.
Join us in Cluj between Friday the 3rd and Sunday the 5th of November to learn how to turn your ideas and our space data into impactful solutions. Romania is already a hub for renewable energy innovation, so developing a sustainable infrastructure will be one key focus. Will you be one of the people who creates a winning solution?
The winners of the CASSINI Hackathon Romania will receive up to €1000 in cash prizes and access to start-up support programmes including:
- €1000 in cash
- 3 Months of free access to ClujHub Incubation infrastructure & Startup Community
