The Connected Reindeer Hackathon

There are 3500–4500 traffic accidents that involve reindeer per year in Finnish Lapland. These accidents cause loss and damage to reindeer herders and vehicle owners.
Join the Connected Reindeer Hackathon 2022, Aug 25 – 29, 2022, to innovate technical application concepts, demos or business models to prevent traffic accidents caused by reindeer.

Create a team of 2–5 students. Your team should choose one of the 3 challenges to solve:
CHALLENGE 1. A mobile app for preventing reindeer road accidents
CHALLENGE 2. A business concept of a reindeer road accident prevention mobile app  
CHALLENGE 3. Open innovation of disruptive technologies in the context of reindeer herding and road safety in Lapland

A hackathon is a design sprint -like even in which computer programmers and others involved in software and sometimes hardware development collaborate intensively on software projects. The goal of a hackathon is to create functioning software by the end of the event.
