Hackathon@productronica—Your real-time challenge

The Hackathon will celebrate its premiere at this year’s productronica. At a hackathon, a group of hackers completes a 48-hour “marathon” working on concrete problems (challenges). The cross-disciplinary teams develop approaches that provide food for thought and innovative solutions.

The “hackers” in our case are you, of course—the young professionals or students from the fields of electrical engineering, automation, mechanical engineering and industrial engineering.

The challenges will be submitted by the exhibitors. They are therefore real and offer you a good opportunity to get to know potential employers.
