Join the next ‘Hack4Smart Services’ Hackathon on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 24-26 November 2017 at the Brightlands Smart Services Campus in Heerlen. The event’s theme is ‘Mobility as a Service’. Prior to the Hackathon, an Inspirational event will be held on Thursday, 26 October.

If you have an entrepreneurial spirit and/or a passion for technology, we would love to have you on board. We want to bring together people with different backgrounds: data scientists, engineers, software coders, user experience experts, marketeers, business people, investors … We are looking for students as well as professionals. You can register as a team or as an individual. In the latter case, we will link you with other participants that have complementary skills, so you form a great team.

During the hackathon you will tackle a challenge using technology. In a small team of 4-6 people, you come up with a solution and work out a proof-of-concept and business plan. Throughout the weekend, coaches will help you with different aspects: how to use smart technology, set up experiments, analyze data and build algorithms, write software, make a business case and pitch your idea. All this happens within a period of 48 hours. The winners of the hackathon will be rewarded for their efforts with great prizes.
