The “Advanced Technologies in the Service of Ecology” Hackathon held at STP Niš
During the weekend, ten exceptional teams worked dilligently for 24 hours on developing the idea of using advanced technologies for prototyping new options for a better life for the citizens, by inventing solutions for the urban pocket.
The presentation of all teams’ solutions showed that the mostly young hackathon participants are motivated, armed with knowledge from different areas, and above all, creative. Their suggested solutions can be applied to all urban pockets, not only in the City of Niš, but also outside of it, and the support for their solutions and work that is further provided by the City of Niš and the Science and Technology Park Niš is a safe guarentee for universal gain.
