Join the CASSINI Hackathon Germany in Berlin and explore how EU Space data could be used to Connect the Arctic and protect its wildlife. This hackathon will be a hybrid event, so you can join in person or virtually!

Teams will be presented with 3 challenges which will test their creative skills and imagination from the very first brainstorm. They will use data from Copernicus, Galileo and EGNOS to imagine game-changing solutions and will win career-changing prizes along the way!


Develop your idea!

The winning team at the German Hackathon will have the chance to further develop their idea with an intensive “Product Lab” with N3XTCODER and leading German partners in the tech/sustainability sectors.

Other prizes will allow the team to build up their idea further. Suitable funding will be provided. 


The top 3 teams across all hackathons will be awarded with an additional +100 hours of expert mentoring.
