Green ideas hackathon or Climathon in Liepaja!
The Green Ideas hackathon is a 48 hour challenge where you not only gain new skills and knowledge but also make new friends and meet awesome mentors. Together with your teammates and mentor support, you will be able to find the best solution to solve one of our challenges or even develop your own innovative solution, which will be presented to the jury at the end of the event.
If you are at least 18 years old enthusiastic student and you have marketing, programming, graphic design, data processing, business, project management or other relevant skills then we are waiting for you!
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!
