Connect. Collaborate. Create.
Today’s challenges are too complex to be solved by any individual person or nation. The solutions of the future will require the creativity and innovation of us all because only by working together will we be able to create a better world. This is the challenge that has been set for the latest Accenture Digital Hackathon, the third edition of which will go beyond Italy to also involve the United Arab Emirates, Germany, the Czech Republic, Spain, Great Britain and Turkey.
It is to be Accenture’s first connected hackathon! An exceptional opportunity to come together with other young talents in a challenge of international scope, sharing ideas and experimenting with the latest technologies and innovations.
During our 24-hour marathon the participants will be asked to prototype ideas, products and services that are able to create social and economic value for the community by hacking everyday objects. Participants will be asked to use digital technologies in creative, innovative ways to benefit people and the environment with a view to offering solutions in a range of fields.
The projects executed by the teams for the competition will be evaluated by a panel of expert judges, some of which will be members of Accenture senior management, along with other authoritative figures from the world of high-tech and innovation.
The three winning teams will be awarded with a technological voucher.
At the end of the ceremony, the first teams in each city will then be invited to compete head-to-head against the winners from the other cities in order to determine the top three teams overall.
Experience the unforgettable thrill of coming together, for two days in an amazing setting, with peers who share the same passion for digital technology and innovation.
Participation is entirely free of charge and open to both individuals and teams of 3 to 5 people, and those who are best able to stand out in the eyes of the judges will be rewarded with fantastic prizes.
The Hackathon will be held at Accenture Digital Acceleration Center (DAC) Building #2 Dubai Internet City (DIC) United Arab Emirates.
