Future Cities
Satellite Hackathon

20. - 21. September at StartupLab 

What is Future Cities - Satellite Hackathon?
The Satellite Hackathon is a part of Oslo Innovation Week 2019 and is a 24-hour challenge, where the participating teams compete to come up with the best solution(s) on the challenges our future cities faces utilizing satellite data. The teams can choose to solve challenges within four categories: air pollution, energy, construction infrastructure and open challenge.

All the teams will get access to satellite data, as well as mentoring from some of the best professionals within their field.

The Satellite Hackathon will have two different classes: Technical and Conceptual.
- Technical: For participants coding a functioning demo/product
- Conceptual: For participants creating a conceptual demo/product

The goal of the Hackathon is to create a functioning demo/product within 24-hours that will be presented to a jury who will select the winning teams. 


Future Cities

Future Cities will play a major role as over 68% of the world's population will live in urban areas by 2050.

Just in Norway, there is expected a 38% growth in the population within 2050. This will lead to a 60% increase in need for residentials and a 25% higher energy demand (CenSES). Giving Norweigan cities new challenges in order to become sustainable cities. Through the hackathon participants will explore how satellite data can be used to help solve some of these challenges. 

Who can participate?

Everyone interested in exploring satellite data, both technical and non-technical, is urged to apply. We strive to have a good mix of both students and professional. 

If you already have a team of superstars, great! If not, let us know and we will assign you to a team that fits your skills and interests. 

Who is behind?

The Satellite Hackathon is collaborative effort between the organizing partners StartupLab, Equinor and ESA BIC Norway together with DNV GL, Hafslund ECO, Oslo Innovation Week 2019, Norwegian Space Center, Kjeller Innovasjon, Norwegian Computing Center, The Innvation Effect, NILU and Microsoft.
