Event description


Hack the Future of Mobility & Energy – And Win Up to €5k+ in Prizes!

Developers, designers and entrepreneurs bring your ideas, and see how far you can take them in 48 hours.

Our industry is being shaped and influenced from every imaginable angle. As we innovate and reinvent, there are endless opportunities waiting to be explored. Join us for a weekend of collaboration and coding, and see what you can achieve.

This event is about creating solutions to real energy and transport challenges using a variety of datasets, APIs, and hardware provided by industry-leading brands. The hackathon will connect you with our partners Airbus, Cisco, HERE, SBB Cargo and VINCI, for a weekend of problem solving and prototyping. Together you will build new, impactful products.

The need for trailblazers who create better and faster solutions is at an all-time high.

You don’t need to be a pro to attend. So, whether you are a first timer or a professional, let’s see what you’re made of.

How are teams formed?

Teams are formed on Friday evening after you have learned about the datasets, APIs, and hardware available to you during the hack. There will be ample time for networking, so you can exchange your ideas with other hackers and begin to form teams. There will also be a round of idea pitching, so you can join a team with an idea you find interesting. Each team should have a diverse mix of developers, designers, and all rounders.

Will there be food and drink provided?

You bet. We'll keep you full with meals, snacks, and beverages, so you can focus on hacking.

Who owns the intellectual property created during the hackathon?

All teams hold the rights to the intellectual property created during the hackathon. You are the full owner of the products you make, so work hard and hack away!

Can I join even if this is will be my first hackathon?

Absolutely! If you are passionate about finding solutions to smart transportation & energy challenges, then join in. No previous experience necessary.

What will the prizes be?

We'll have a prize for the first (€5k!), second, and third place winners of the hackathon! Our program partners will also award individual prizes to the teams they think used their technology in the most creative and effective way.

How many people can be on one team?

Up to five people per team.
