THE ODYSSEY HACKATHON, DESCRIBED IN FORBES AS ‘EUROPE’S LEADING HACKATHON’, IS BEING MOVED ONLINE AND REBRANDED AS MOMENTUM. THIS TRANSFORMATION IS NOT ONLY DRIVEN BY CURRENT CIRCUMSTANCES DUE TO COVID-19, BUT ALSO BY AN URGE TO CREATE A NEW TYPE OF EVENT THAT FULLY EMBRACES THE POTENTIAL OF THE INTERNET. MOMENTUM WILL TAKE PLACE ON NOVEMBER 13-15 2020.
105 selected teams from around the world will co-create paradigm-shifting solutions with the challenge leads including governments, corporations, and non-profit organizations, their stakeholders and end-users along more than 300 jedis experts in vertical and horizontal domains.
Winning teams implement a pilot with the challenge leads and their ecosystems, on top of the €200.000 cash rewards distributed among the winners.
The challenges have a global societal and economic impact, each of them tied directly to one or more UN Sustainable Development Goals. Teams will be able to impact a variety of industries and make their mark on the energy transition, conscious cities, critical infrastructure, logistics, public safety, nature conservation, real estate, healthcare, and digital identity.
