A hackathon is an ideas and innovation competition. Interdisciplinary teams work together over a period of 48 hours. Thus, they aim to find concrete solutions to the challenges put to them by component, machine and plant manufacturer in the electronics industry.

From industry 4.0 and cloud systems to autonomous vehicles. Overall, the key to innovation lies in electronics. The Productronica 2019 expo in Munich is the world’s leading show for electronics development and production. The VDMA, Fraunhofer IZM and Messe München organized a hackathon for young engineers, software and hardware developers and scientists. Additionally, students, start-ups and entrepreneurs participated. The hackathon took place as a live event at the fair’s new Accelerating Talents Area.
