The Satellite Applications Catapult is hosting a Satellite Applications Hackathon event on the weekend of 8-9 June 2013. It will take place over two sites – the Electron Building, on the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus, and at Inmarsat, Old Street, London.
The two-day ‘technology development’ event is part of a series of activities to help generate innovative ideas and solutions in response to several challenges set by the Catapult or its associated partners. Hackathons offer an innovation platform to enable people to work together to solve challenges using space technologies, and exploit the benefits for both space and other markets sectors, eg. transport, healthcare, natural resources, etc.
The Hackathon is open to anyone who would like to participate – software developers, engineers, technologists, scientists, designers, artists, educators, students and entrepreneurs – anyone who has a passion to help change the world.
