(Young) BrightHack in Heerlendecember 16, 2018
With over two million views of the text, photos and videos posted of the BrightHack and Young BrightHack events at the Brightlands Smart Services Campus in Heerlen, the interest was record-setting, but it was also a fantastic weekend at the campus in Heerlen in terms of the content presented.
Participants from the Netherlands and abroad focused on problems in security, international trade, education and health care for 48 hours straight. Those coming up with a number of promising ideas competed to win a total of 60,000 Euros in prize money, weekend trips and festival tickets. Prior to BrightHack, a Young BrightHack event was held for students. Their ideas on education in the future were destined for teachers, parents and school administrators. BrightHack is an initiative of the Brightlands Smart Services Campus and the Chamber of Commerce.
