European Hackathon – 2nd Edition

European Hackathon – 2nd Edition


The promotion and orientation service offers the possibility to Iuav students to participate in the European Hackathon led by Gustave Eiffel University with the support of France

and AFIT France.


The programme will focus on: “How to support behavioural changes for more sustainable mobility?”


Participants will work in teams with students from other disciplines and countries and have the chance to deepen their knowledge with experts and make the final pitch to an international jury.


Students are expected to have an interest in mobility issues and, more broadly, in all the elements that can influence the mobility practices of goods and travellers and are related to service supply, urban or residential planning, commercial or employment geography as well as the psychological and cognitive characteristics of individuals. The hackathon is therefore aimed not only at mobility specialists but also at students capable of shedding light on the environments (economic, geographical, sociological, psychological, technical, etc.) of mobility.


At the end of the event, the three winning teams will get an invitation to show their projects to a panel of specialists in the field and representatives of European infrastructure funding agencies.


The programme includes two team video conferences to define the project and three days of in-person meetings in Paris in March. The entire path will be held in English.
