15 April - 17 April. Do you have an idea of how to improve urban mobility and reduce pollution? Join the EIT Urban Mobility Hackathon!
In this 48-hour hackathon, the EIT Community is looking to find innovative solutions in the urban mobility sector. All who are interested in sustainability, technology, and innovation are invited to participate in the hackathon.
Urban Mobility Hackathon, a project funded by the EIT Urban Mobility, is organised by the first innovation district VEFRESH, City of Riga, Institute of Electronics and Computer Science, Teikums co-working and EIT Urban Mobility. The event’s lead partner is the Embassy of the Netherlands in Latvia, and it is supported also by Accenture Latvia and Latvia’s largest telecommunications operator LMT.
Those who are interested in sustainability, technology, and innovation are invited to participate in the hackathon by joining a team or creating their own. The EIT Community will guide you through all the steps of the hackathon, from idea submission to mentoring and final presentations to the jury for the selection of winners. Top three most promising solutions will be awarded monetary prizes of EUR 6 000 in total to aid further solution development.
The hackathon will also include public events open to all - students, start-ups, professionals and the wider community.
Moreover, the hackathon is not a stand-alone event, but will kick off 10-week summer incubation programme devoted to mobility innovations!
