Odyssey Hackathon 2020
April 3 - April 5
Odyssey Hackathon provides a new space where everyone (and everything) can become part of a solution to a 21st-century challenge.
The challenges we tackle are complex problems that involve multiple stakeholders and cannot be solved by a single company, industry, or state. They have a global societal and economic impact, and are tied to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).
At the fourth edition of the Hackathon (April 3-5) in Groningen, the Netherlands, 105 selected teams will collaborate with corporates, governments, and non-profits to create solutions to how we organise society in the 21st century. The areas where teams can make an impact range from energy transition, logistics, urban infrastructure, healthcare, public safety to nature conservation and digital identity. Hundreds of Jedi, including the legal and financial regulators, will be there to support the teams in building their solutions.
All teams will be provided with access to ecosystems related to their challenge for further prototype development and pilot launch after the hackathon. All teams will also get the €200,000 total cash rewards.
