Second place at the Hackathon LAUSITZukunft
To develop great ideas and innovative solutions for a structural change and climate-neutral Lusatia - that was the goal of the “Hackthon-Lausitzzukunft” from November 10-24, which has come to an end.
AneCom AeroTest also participated with a team. "Think outside of the box" and actively shape the future of our region, was our motivation to take part in the hackathon.
This year, the pandemic set new conditions there as well. Instead of being on site for 24 hours, 46 participants were digitally searching for solutions for 14 days, connected via virtual meeting rooms. A total of five challenges were available and our team chose CHALLENGE #2 :
"New green enterprises,business models and economic activities to preserve and create new economic valuable, new green jobs and welfare for Lusatia, but as well foster the change towards a decarbonized economy and society."
During the hackathon, all teams received professional support from mentors. In addition to contact persons, they were able to obtain valuable feedback on their pitches of the solutions they had developed. Finally, five minutes during the final presentation defined the success of all teams.
Congratulations to our team! With their project "Don't let energy go to waste" they were able to convince with the construction of a gasification plant for different materials as a prototype for Germany and thus took the 2nd place in the final.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our colleagues, the jury and all the mentors who participated in the hackathon.
