What makes our hackathons unique and successful is the variety of participants that we assemble into well-balanced teams in terms of gender, age, origin and professional background.
We believe that interdisciplinarity combined with endless creativity is key to achieve innovation. We do not restrict participation solely to scientists, programmers and engineers, but on the contrary, promote the participation of any creative mind from various backgrounds.
In this sense it is not rare among the teams, to see an astrophysicist working with a mecanical engineer, a doctor and a creative writer together on the same challenge.
