ActInSpace is an international innovation contest uniting over 100 cities across 5 continents. Designed for students but open to everyone, ActInSpace is an event targeting creativity and aiming to cultivate student entrepreneurial initiatives. Teams have 24 hours to imagine and design innovative services and products derived from space technologies and space acquired data. This initiative is designed to consolidate the space sector’s vibrant image and show how space technologies are supporting applications that reach into all areas of our daily lives.
The participants can choose from more than 20 challenges, divided into 4 categories:
- #Business in everyday life: Get your business off the ground using space technologies
- #Space4.0: Become a NewSpace player and improve the space sector thanks to ‘earth technologies’
- #Humanitarian: Find a way to make the Space Sector serve humanitarian causes
- #Fly to the moon and Beyond: Dreaming big, Innovate even bigger
We also organize a hackathon pre-event: Team Formation Session at PLNT in Leiden on November 8th, from 18:00 to 20:00. During the session, the attendees will learn all about the upcoming ActInSpace hackathon in the Netherlands. They will get to know the hackathon location, meet the organizers, maybe already form their team, and give a kick start to their project. Find out more about the pre-event and register here.
