ST. PÖLTEN, Austria - Sept. 23, 2021 - PRLog -- Make bio-waste collection more efficient, improve the safety of urban traffic or conserve soil and water in agriculture – these are just three of the challenges students and citizens across Europe can address during the first hackathon by E3UDRES2. At the center of the hackathon, which takes place in a virtual setting from 23 to 24 September 2021, are real life problems submitted by private and public organizations from small and medium-sized cities and their rural environments in six European countries. Teams coming from various backgrounds together with experienced mentors will have exactly 36 hours to address the given challenges and work on innovative and smart solutions. By staging this online event, E3UDRES2 will contribute to developing innovative ecosystems for medium-sized cities and their rural surroundings in Europe and help them become smart and sustainable regions.

The European University Alliance E3UDRES2, which is funded by the Erasmus+ program of the European Commission, pools the intellectual capacities and infrastructure of six higher education institutions across Europe plus nine associated partners from the industry and public sector. It aims to co-create a European multi-university campus that will act as a source of smart and sustainable innovations for small or medium-sized towns and their surrounding rural areas. In doing so, E3UDRES2 will contribute to the European Education, Research and Innovation Area. A first energetic step towards this aim by E3UDRES2 is the forthcoming "Hack2Change" hackathon 2021, an event at which people work together online for full 36 hours (24/7) and develop solutions for real-life problems presented by organizations from different regions across Europe.
