The Green Hackathon is the third step of the “Innovation & Entrepreneurship Program” at the German Jordanian Ubiversity in Amman. GJU students of all disciplines are invited to develop innovative ideas and build prototypes that tackle 3 green challenges in 2.5 days. The event will be taking place at The Tank (by Umniah) from October 20 till 22, 2016.
The first step of the program was the Green Ideathon event, where GJU students worked together to come up with creative solutions to green challenges faced by industries and society, such as those related to logistics, sustainable energy, green buildings, community and technology.
This year, students will be tackling 6 main challenges:
- Energy consumption optimization for courier services
- Waste/water management in smart cities
- Renewable energy solutions for GJU
- Homemade renewable energy solutions
- Sustainable shelter/room for rural areas
- Light source in rural areas
Following the hackathon, the students will have the opportunity to continue developing their ideas as graduation projects, find internship opportunities, or start their own businesses.
The deadline for registration is October 15, so make sure to register here.
