The GALACTICA project aims to support the creation of new industrial value chains around textile and aerospace sectors based on advanced manufacturing. It also aims to drive cross-sectoral innovation to boost new market opportunities, revenues and improve productivity.
In this context, the project is organising a Hackathon which will take place in two rounds, firstly a virtual challenge on open innovation from 1-14 October, and a second round for selected finalists on 30 November and 1 December. The first round will be fully online.
The GALACTICA Hackathon is open to start-ups and SMEs as well as to university students based in the European Union or United Kingdom.
There is up to €50,000 in prizes.
The registration for the Hackathon can be done through the GALACTICA Calls platform until 24 September at 17:00 CEST.
