dotSPACE foundation and Royal HaskoningDHV are proud to be the local organisers of the 6th CASSINI Hackathon, an extraordinary event dedicated to “Space for International Development & Humanitarian Aid.”
What is the CASSINI Hackathon?
The CASSINI Hackathons & Mentoring programme is an integral part of the European Commission’s CASSINI initiative, which aims to support space entrepreneurship. This initiative consists of a series of six hackathons over three years, specifically designed to leverage space technologies in addressing global challenges. The hackathons bring together a diverse range of individuals, including young professionals, students, researchers, and entrepreneurs with interests in software, data, design, and business. By harnessing the power of earth observation data, satellite positioning technologies, and satellite communications, participants collaborate to create innovative solutions.
Unlock Your Potential
As a participant in the CASSINI Hackathon, you will have the opportunity to put your skills and knowledge to the test while working on three common challenges focused on international development and humanitarian aid:
- the development of sustainable infrastructure,
- strengthening food security and providing clean water,
- understanding and forecasting forced migration.
This unique event will take place simultaneously in 10 locations across Europe, creating a dynamic and collaborative environment that fosters creativity and innovation.
Local Organiser Support
At each hackathon location, a dedicated local organiser, such as dotSPACE foundation and Royal Haskoning DHV in the Netherlands, will ensure a seamless and enriching experience. As local organisers in the Netherlands, we are committed to providing comprehensive support, enabling you to make the most of this transformative event. Our team will receive a comprehensive support package to implement the hackathon effectively in our region.
