KVK and Brightlands Smart Services Campus joined forces to organize a BrightHack, an exciting hackathon weekend (48 hours) on issues concerning Crime, Health, International Trade and Education from Friday November 30 until Sunday December 2 at the Brightlands Smart Services Campus in Heerlen (Smedestraat 2).

Do you want to work with real datasets of the Police, Accenture, the Province of Limburg and KVK (Netherlands Chamber of Commerce)? Are you up for a challenge? Claim your seat and get the chance to win incredible prizes. 

The first prize at each track is an assignment worth €12.500. There are also second and third prizes, such as festival tickets, experiences and trips. In total there are prizes for more than € 60.000 to win! Teams will be judged at the end of the competition on four criteria: execution, performance, design quality, and creativity. 

Obviously, we provide a nice distraction with fun and entertainment. Not only gaming and table football but also surprising activities. Stay connected to follow the developments via 

Your meals for the weekend will be free and there’ll be plenty of snacks and drinks to keep you energized.

We reserved tents (including air beds) for all participants that will be staying inside the building. Important! Remember to bring your own sleeping bag, pillow and toiletries.

We are looking for students as well as professionals. Register as a team or as an individual.

We are eager to see all of you!
