International Space Apps Challenge 2019 in Tartu
MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Geography, the Tartu Observatory and Tartu Science Park jointly organised and hosted a 48h hackathon event as part of the 2019 International Space Apps Challenge. This global event happened on the weekend 18.-20. October 2019 at more than 225 locations, 80 countries, world-wide over the course of the weekend with more than 29.000 participants, and with Tartu as the only Estonian location. We are organising this event in Tartu for the second time, after the debut in 2018. Overall it can be concluded that this was again a very successful event: the teams developed substantial solutions and got engaged with industry and entrepreneurship; inter-departmental and inter-sectoral networks for the research institutes have been strengthened in particular between the organising institutes and with the Tartu Science Park/ESA Business Incubator and several leading innovative (geospatial) software companies, such as CGI, KappaZeta and Datel.
