EU Space Week Estonia will be THE event for European Space in 2017. Garage48 will kick off the week-long event by organizing a hackathon on space technology (already for the second time).
Garage48 SpaceTech: Integrated Applications hackathon is a one-of-a-kind gathering of engineers, developers, designers, scientists and experts eager to explore the possibilities of space technology and to brainstorm ideas on how to apply them here, on Earth.
The hackathon has 10 streams leaded by our partners ESA - European Space Agency , European GNSS Agency and ESTCube
3. Security (Border protection, Crisis management) by Milrem

10. Other topics out of the box
The hackathon challenge: to come up with exciting ideas, use different elements from different streams to create integrated solutions and meet like-minded people to explore and learn about the possibilities of space technology.
Prepare and get inspired for the hackathon with the pre-event webinar on October the 18th.
The webinar will include: short intro to Garage48 & detailed description of the technology ESA and GSA are bringing to the hack. They will also announce their special prizes!
Of course, all participants can ask questions.
