EU-IoT/EFPF Hackathon co-located with CONASENSE 2022

The EU-IoT/EFPF Hackathon focused on “sustainable next-generation IoT applications”. We invite you to bring your ideas and to develop solutions that address IoT skills training, IoT sustainable business modelsIoT novel technical solutions in the context of 6 challenge domains: IoT interfaces, far Edge, near Edge, infrastructure, and also: a specific challenge domain of the European Factory Platform (EFPF), with focus on manufacturing. The Hackathon took place in Munich, co-located with CONASENSE 2022.

The EU-IoT/EFPF Hackathon has ocurred on June 27th and 28th in hybrid mode, co-located with the 12th CONASENSE symposium, focusing on mobile sustainable IoT solutions.

The Hackathon counted with 143 registered participants across the world, out of which 30 participants have been selected and formed 15 teams. We congratulate the 3 winning teams!
