In a hackathon, the innovators who have been particularly successful in the early stages of the Campaign will have the opportunity to create a proof-of-concept and proof-of-feasibility for their ideas.

What’s in for you?1. Work with us – Let’s solve real problems together to move towards sustainability.2. Work on-site – The teams with the best ideas will develop their applications further during a hackathon. They will get to work on-site or remotely for the development of their proof-of-concepts.3. Win Prizes – Three winning teams per challenge – 1st 5,000€, 2nd 3,000€ and 3rd 2,000€

How do you get to the next phase?All ideas will be evaluated by Siemens experts based on the following criteria. So, keep them in mind:a) Innovativeness: Incremental or disruptive innovationb) Sustainability: DEGREE and impact on the UN Sustainability Development Goalsc) Feasibility: Degree of technical and/or economic feasibilityd) Potential: Fit to Siemens processes, products and marketse) Implementation: General implementation efforts (Time to market, R&D costs, etc.).
