Hackaton Recharge Earth

Time to accelerate the energy transition. The energy transition is one of the largest and most urgent societal challenges of our time. Together we have all the know-how and expertise to take concrete steps. Together we can make a real impact by laying the foundations for the energy system of tomorrow today. That is why Recharge Earth is looking for creative solutions to meet this immense challenge and thus accelerate the energy transition.

We need your help with that! Join us and get in charge @ Recharge Earth.
On September 8 & 9 we are organizing a hackathon for students during the Recharge Earth conference. Where you and a team will work on one of the three practical issues that can accelerate the energy transition.

  • What are you going to do?
  • With 60 students from TU Delft, Erasmus University Rotterdam and Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences, you will work in multidisciplinary teams of 4 students on one of the three practical issues.
  • You work two days of +/- 8 hours non-stop on one of the issues.
  • Beforehand there is a pleasant introduction to the other students and the opportunity to ask questions about the case.
  • Together with your team you present your solution in an appealing way, through a presentation, visualization and/or mock-up of the proposed solution.

The program

  • August 30 – Kick-off
    On August 30 there will be a live kick-off in Rotterdam from 17:30. We will tell you everything about the hackathon and the assignments while enjoying a tasty snack and a drink. Of course you can also meet your team! It is also possible to participate online.
