The WTZ Ost and our Faculty are again inviting interested students and early career researchers to participate in a Hackathon to develop "Digital Solutions for Societal Challenges". Students and early career researchers from all disciplines can apply, either as a team or as individuals. Programming skills are welcome, but are not essential for participation

Focus on environment & mobility

This year the Hackathon focuses on the topics of environment and mobility: Interdisciplinary teams are going to develop solutions on one of nine selected challenges around the topics of environment and mobility - from "KlimaGrätzls" and roadside planting to sharing mobility or cycling in Vienna, just to name a few. The Hackathon is organized by the WTZ Ost in cooperation with our Faculty, the City of Vienna, SDG Watch Austria and UpLeveled.

During the hackathon the teams will work on a challenge in order to develop a prototype or a concept for a possible digital solution. At the last day of the hackathon, each team will pitch their ideas to a jury.

Registration possible till 1 September 2021!
