March 9th and 10th 2019 we are organizing our Internet-of-Things/LoraWAN-Hackathon at the venue of Smart Factory Technologies Added in Emmen, The Netherlands for Interreg North Sea Region Project LIKE!.
A Hackathon is an innovation-competition where bright, creative people try to come up with solutions for challenges presented to them at the start of their 30-hour long endeavor.
The competitors are organized in small teams of 5-6 people where every team member will have its own role/task (registration is open for everyone, you can enter as an individual or as a team).
At the end of the 30-hour inventors-marathon the teams have to pitch their solutions to a jury which will decide who wins Best Overall, Best Design and Best Commercial (2000Euro prizemoney and a chance to have interreg-partners boost your idea/product).
The Hackathon theme “Internet-of-Things/LoraWAN “ is divided into 4 challenge-tracks:
Registration cost is 25Euro (which is less than the foodcost and only to prevent no-shows)
We will have hardware present but if you would like to bring/use your own hardware/software/platform that is fine. We will use TheThingsNetwork for development.
The ideas/products and intellectual property will stay in the hands of the individuals/teams that generated them. If someone, a company or a government wants to use/work with your product they will have to negotiate with the team that owns the IP.
We already have teams registered from UK, Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands.
