The first Hackathon is planned for the last weekend of September 2021. We will provide a link to register your project idea and your international team in the summer. Approximately 15 teams will be selected to participate in each Hackathon.
Before each Hackathon, we will have informational events leading up to it. These might include background on the challenges, cross-cultural team building, and development tools. Everyone is invited to join.
Who should participate in the Hackathon?
The Transatlantic AI Hackathons are open to students, entrepreneurs, startups, innovators, tech and content leaders, developers, young professionals, experts, and companies who want to ensure that Artificial Intelligence is used in beneficial ways and are interested to work in cross-Atlantic teams.
We are also open to suggestions and submissions of concrete challenges, mentorships, and additional sponsorships. Companies and organizations of all sizes can join in – we will find the right place for you.
Everyone is invited to educational events before the Hackathon itself – for example, on the background on the challenges, cross-cultural team building, and development tools.
