You still have doubts?

If you still have doubts about whether this hackathon is for you, we can reassure you –

NO PRIOR KNOWLEDGE ABOUT COPERNICUS SATELLITE DATA IS REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE HACKATHON. WE WILL TEACH YOU EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW!

During the hackathon you will receive the support and friendly advice of our experienced mentors.

We will provide you with access to Copernicus data, as well as space and infrastructure to create innovative solutions, but we expect you to take your laptop, phone, all the chargers you need so that your work process does not stop.

Here, in Coworking Liepaja premises, we will provide you with a place to relax and gather your thoughts, but take your sleeping bag, pillow and shower accessories with you.

Together we will create a unique atmosphere for a creative work process!
