Join us at the unique hackathon focusing on digital services supporting and leading a green transition. As part of this innovative event, participants will work on co-creating solutions using digital tools and data to help lead and support the biggest change of our generation – the green transition.

University of Tartu together with Garage48 invite you to embark on a unique hackathon in the dynamic fields of clean energy, sustainability, and digitalization.

DIGI-GREEN HACKATHON, happening on May 10-12 in Jõhvi, Ida-Virumaa focuses on leveraging digital tools and data to drive and champion a green transition, the most significant change of our era.
Our hackathon revolves around a central question: How can digital skills, knowledge, and data be wielded to foster the societal change we aspire to achieve?  We will be co-creating innovative solutions under the mentorship of industry experts and state representatives, ensuring that the proposed ideas are not only visionary but also feasible within specific domains.

We’re inviting engineers, designers, public digital service experts, environmental experts, green transition experts, data experts, students, enthusiasts and visionaries from various fields to turn your expertise into a sustainable future. Let’s turn our hackathon ideas into tangible, impactful projects and pave the way for a greener tomorrow!

Join us with or without an idea, as an individual or with team members. Hackathon teams are formed at the opening night around the top ideas pitched. Teamwork is guided by industry experts as mentors, throughout the weekend.

You can get inspired and learn more about the hackathon challenge, the data, and some great examples of digital green solutions out there, at the virtual pre-event on April 23rd.

Registration to the hackathon is open until 23.59 May 2nd 2024.
