2nd STARS Hack&Match event: Big Data for Railway Processes, Products and Services (Call for Solutions open to EU tech-savvy SMEs)
12 January 2023 - 27 January 2023
The “Hack&Match” events represent an integral part of the assistance process delivered by the STARS project, as the goal is to accompany the more traditional SMEs of the Railway & Multimodality sector to better identify their “needs” but also to find potential solutions.
The "Hack&Match" events are composed by a Hackathon-part and a Matchmaking-part.
The STARS Partners will organise five Hack&Match events during the project. The topic of the second one is: “Big Data for Railway Processes, Products and Services”. Participation is free of charge and 100% online.
Who should participate:
(key-target) more traditional SMEs, that have identified 7 Challenges as their needs
(key-target) tech-savvy SMEs / start-ups etc., able to propose ideas/solutions (also available products/solutions) as Solutions to such Challenges
Academia, Technology Centres, Digital Innovation Hubs, Researchers, and similar ones to create the grounds for further innovation.
