DEDICATED TO POSTWAR RECONSTRUCTION OF UKRAINE
WHAT IS REBUILD UKRAINE HACKATHON
Rebuild Ukraine Hackathon is the first of what will be multiple events throughout the next few years that will strive to generate innovative solutions for rebuilding Ukraine. All events will include participation from students studying in Ukraine.
All the events will require cross-disciplinary teams, which we believe is the key to innovation. The best ideas are invented by mixing-matching, borrowing, re-using, re-inventing and validating existing solutions and concepts from other disciplines.
Rebuild Ukraine Hackathon includes partners and sponsors that cover a wide variety of sectors in the design-construction-operating of buildings and cities and expertise in information technology, software programming and machine learning.
Rebuild Ukraine Hackathon will continue to organize and hold events multiple times per year until Ukraine is finished rebuilding!
