During the Hackathon, students and graduates designed ICT solutions for concrete questions posed by companies. Within our network of Partners in Education, there was enormous interest in the Hackathon. We ultimately selected Atos, Actemium and Accenture to introduce cases. In doing so, we created three streams around Artificial Intelligence, Drones and Virtual & Mixed Reality.
Despite the fact that the vacation period was coming up, we managed to find 50 participants who were willing to work voluntarily. As a team, we included the organising of the Hackathon as part of our argumentation for the Entrepreneurial Behaviour competence. The Hackathon was really fun to organise. We came into contact with many companies and have bolstered our ties as an organisation-team. How entrepreneurial is that?”
