Hackathon participants will have to find creative and innovative solutions to problems in the following fields: environmental pollution, waste management, mobility around the city, food security, or any other problem the participants think is worth pursuing.
The top competing teams will receive cash prizes and additional in-kind support to help fuel the further development of their hackathon prototypes.
