SGAC Space4Earth Hackathon
October 20, 2019 @ 09:00 - 17:00
In the 20 years since the founding of SGAC, we have become established in the space sector as a voice of university students and young professionals to the United Nations, space agencies, industry, and academia.
Two of our new project groups – Space Technologies for Earth Applications (STEA) and Space Medicine and Life Sciences (SMLS) have come together to host one of SGAC’s unique workshops, the “Space for Earth Hackathon”, a platform for SGAC members to innovate and solve UN-SDGs based challenges in interprofessional and multidisciplinary groups.
This is to create a realised and measurable impact by students and young professionals in the space sector and on the SDGs which can be presented to the UN and other entities where required. These challenges will be proposed by selective industry, academia and government partners whose subject matter experts will provide guidance throughout the day and judge your pitch at the end of it.
Seats are limited, submit your application on the Hackathon Website by September 15!
