The EU-IoT Hackathon focuses on “sustainable next generation IoT applications”. We invite you to bring your ideas and to develop solutions that address IoT skills training, IoT sustainable business models, IoT novel technical solutions in the context of 6 challenge domains: IoT interfaces, far Edge, near Edge, infrastructure, and also: a specific challenge domain of the European Factory Platform (EFPF), with focus on manufacturing. It will take place between 27th-29th June 2022, in Munich (Germany). The hackathon is co-located with CONASENSE2022.
The aim of the EU-IoT Hackathon is to disseminate new business ideas, experiments and prototypes as first step to best support next generation sustainable IoT solutions.
The teams shall have the opportunity to develop their ideas within an international flagship environment being mentored by several international experts from the Next Generation IoT (NGIoT) community and being in contact with NGIoT community flagship events.
Types of projects
- Technical projects: where the focus is on the development of a technical solution to address the challenge. The outcome shall be provided in the form of open-source code to be uploaded to the EU-IoT Hackathon git repository.
- Training skills projects: where the focus is on the development of a training tool to be available online which addresses the specific proposed challenge. Outcome can be: a Web-based training tool; a Tutorial (e.g., PowerPoint, video), etc.
- Prototype Business/Design ideas: where the focus is on the development of a business framework for an IoT solution.
