NOI Hackathon

NOI Hackathon is a 24 hour event that brings together creatives and developers to conceive new ideas and projects.


2 days, 24 hours, different topics to work on, one jury and amazing prizes. Inventors and creative people: developers, designers, data experts, entrepreneurs and enthusiasts. We welcome different ideas, backgrounds and competences. We always have in mind Open Data and Open Source projects, as we want to promote an open and innovative culture. Presentations and code will be published on a public git repository as Open Source prototype.


The event is realized by the Tech-Transfer Digital of the NOI Techpark.
