How this Jam works

Students from different disciplines (coders, designers, developers, engineers, environmental system scientists, …) in interdisciplinary teams are working on creative new solutions for the Green Tech sector. Green Tech Jammers rapidly prototype product/service designs and develop new ideas to foster growth in the green tech industry. The results are presented in 10 minutes pitches in front of a professional jury. Prize money is € 5,000 for the best solutions!

The challenges are provided by green tech experts who take challenges from everyday business life. You can register for the hackathon either alone or with friends. At the informal warm-up on March 24, you’ll get the chance to meet with other participants with whom you can solve your desired challenge.
