HACK 2024

Hackathon for all ifgi students #ifgiHACK24

We would like to invite ALL students of ALL courses at the Institute of Geoinformatics and the GEO Faculty to the second ifgiHACK! At the ifgiHACK you develop ideas and prototypes in teams on current local, global challenges and challenges regarding current research projects or your studies. We reserved plenty of rooms in the GEO building so there is plenty of room for your ideas!

The best idea and prototype will be awarded! 

With the support of the ifgi staff, sponsors from among the ifgi spin-off companies and other supporters, we have prepared the following program.
