Hackathon “Heilbronn future city

One weekend, one goal: designing the smart city of tomorrow.

Let’s work together to make Heilbronn a Smart City. From optimizing pedestrian traffic to improving public safety to automating lighting and maintaining infrastructure, there are many important issues.

Heilbronn University invites you to the Heilbronn future city Hackathon – supported by the event partners who provide the technical know-how. In recent years, the event partners have already hosted two hackathons at Heilbronn University. This year you have the opportunity to solve exciting challenges in the above mentioned areas around Heilbronn. But you already have your own challenge in mind? Then you can enter them directly in the registration form – we are looking forward to your ideas.

We hope you enjoy the Hackathon “Heilbronn future city”!
