Smart Hackathon: Smart Buildings for Smart Cities

ProvincieBrabant Flamand (VBR)

What is a Hackathon? A Hackathon is an event where a group of volunteer developers gathers for the collaborative generation of ideas & prototyping over several days. It is a creative process frequently used in the field of digital innovation. The event often takes place on weekends to make it easier for employees or self-employed workers to be available. It can be organized by a school, a company, an administration, a specific sector, etc. There are no established rules governing this type of event. However, each time, the following essential points are included: Choice of projects by those who carry them out; Very short lead time; Group dynamics and the challenge of emulation or competition; The obligation to produce a working prototype. For more information, contact us: [email protected] What will really happen during this weekend? Friday evening: Presentation of the data and usable means, the guiding ideas or objectives sought ("pitch") by the project leaders; Vote of the participants (those who will develop) to select a number of projects proportional to the number of participants present, each selected project must have at least two or three developers/designers.
Sometimes trainers or special guests are made available or creative techniques are encouraged ("Fly on the wall", "Graffiti Wall", "Immersive" techniques...) ; Team building, and development (for about 48 hours). Sometimes observers/mediators can intervene, reminding us of the role of icebreakers, leaders and teamwork. Saturday and Sunday: Intensive team project development; Regular contact with coaches to question, help and guide groups in their project development. Sunday at the end of the day: Demonstration of prototypes of part or all of the project in front of a jury of specialists (and sometimes with the opinion of the other teams and an invited audience); Award ceremony. Why should I participate? Special theme: "Smart Buildings for Smart Cities" Stakeholders concerned by your issues, the possibility of networking with a direct impact on your activities; A possibility of supporting an innovative internal project to which you cannot devote time in a traditional way: multidisciplinary actors who can criticize your project, improve it.
After the weekend, you can come out with a prototype of your idea that can be used; Support after the event for the best ideas during the "follow-up day"; It is a unique experience to live, as much by the notion of teamwork, the intensity of the weekend as by the friendliness shared throughout the event.
