« am: 20.09.2017, 14:48:57 Nachmittag »
At the Space2Health Hackathon the sky is not the limit - it’s the home of your new data project!

Hosted by Merck and the European Space Agency (ESA) from October 6-7 in Darmstadt, the 24-hour event gives you the unique chance to play around with real Earth observation data provided by FabSpace 2.0. Your team of data enthusiasts can choose from three different challenges, harnessing data collected in space to develop solutions to health-related issues. Don’t worry if you don’t have any prior knowledge of the space or health industries - it’s your skillset that we’re interested in! The hackathon is the perfect opportunity to show off your business and data expertise, whilst making connections with leading data scientists and health experts from Merck and ESA.

In addition to this, the most successful ideas will be rewarded with prizes of up to € 5000. Furthermore, the overall winner has the change to participate in Mercks X-Innovation Challange in Dubai this November (all-inclusive trip). The event kicks off at the Merck Innovation Center on October 6th, and teams will then have 24 hours until they have to pitch their solutions. Applications are open until October 1st via the following link: ... hackathon/
