The Swedish Institute is hosting a 42-hour digital hackathon in February 2021: Sweden-India Mobility Hack – Changing the Way We Move
The mission of the hackathon is to design, test and execute ideas for the future – with a particular focus on mobility.
Students, entrepreneurs and other creatives are invited to join, to help solve these issues and support and propel the ongoing development.
Sweden and India have joined forces to tackle the important issues regarding safe and sustainable transportation.
Emissions, traffic accidents and ineffective traffic flows are problems shared by all large cities of the world. By gathering creative ideas and developing concepts, we want to generate solutions to improve the current situation.
A hackathon is a designer sprint-like event in which participants collaborate intensively on digital innovations. The goal of a hackathon is to create functioning solutions to predetermined challenges by the end of the event.
To this end we have open data sources and help from mentors and partners that have specialist knowledge in an area related to the challenge.
This hackathon aims to help solve questions connected to a future sustainable mobility sector within these five categories:
• Lethal accidents in traffic
• Safe and sustainable transports
• Air pollution / emissions from traffic sector
• Infrastructure for connected vehicles
• Sustainable logistics
