For more than 32 hours straight, participants will have the opportunity to demonstrate their skills and technical abilities in a practical and collaborative learning environment.

The event will begin on Saturday 18 May at 9 a.m. with a welcoming session and presentation of the challenges proposed by collaborating companies. The teams will be able to prepare their projects until 12:00 on 19 May. The hackathon will conclude with a presentation ceremony and prizes for the most innovative teams.

The teams will include support from companies suggesting the challenges and mentors that will guide the teams during the more than 32 hours of the hackathon. The challenges will be announced in the welcoming session, and will include areas such as sustainability, data management, AI, education, health and mobility.
