Are you ready to solve global challenges and make a positive impact?
Then get ready for the Galileo Hackathons on 12-14 November 2021.
We are looking for determined Hackers with a passion for developing sustainable solutions. No previous experience or software development skills are required. The challenge is to leverage satellite positioning technologies such as Galileo and EGNOS to develop solutions for sustainable life on Earth! Follow this simple process to get involved:
What is the Hackathon challenge?
Galileo is Europe’s Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), providing improved positioning and timing information with significant positive implications for many global services and users.
Satellite-based navigation is a key enabler of a modern economy with GNSS signals being critical for many downstream market segments. Almost every downstream market can benefit in some way from the positioning and timing data from Galileo with the European Agency for the Space Programme (EUSPA) focusing on 10 specific downstream markets; consumer solutions, road & automotive, manned aviation, drones, maritime, emergency response, rail, agriculture, geomatics, and critical infrastructures.
Become a Hacker and build a Team with other Hackers. There are many opportunities and benefits waiting for you.
