PoliRural invites you to participate in the AgriHub INSPIRE Hackathon 2021, that is already the 19th hackathon organised by the Plan4All association in the frame of AgriHub CZ&SK projet funded by SmartAgriHubs H2020 project. It is based on the traditional model of the INSPIRE Hackathon, which is not a single event, it’s a process that is designed to efficiently exploit the achieved results of previous hackathons on developing new innovations.

For participants, the main benefit of the INSPIRE Hackathon is the opportunity to access and become a member of an international knowledge community of practice. INSPIRE Hackathon participants receive a diploma documenting and acknowledging their active participation. The top three jury-selected teams, based on a set of predetermined criteria, are offered the opportunity to contribute to peer-reviewed articles and citable publications documenting the outcomes and results of the events. It is hoped that this lasting legacy projects their career growth pathways.

The AgriHub INSPIRE Hackathon has identified 8 challenges to support digital innovation hubs in Czechia and Slovakia:

  1. Crop Detection
  2. Crop Status Monitoring
  3. Agro Environmental Services
  4. Irrigation Management
  5. Extreme Weather
  6. Drones utilisation for crop protection
  7. Analysis, processing and standardisation of data from agriculture machinery for easier utilization by farmers
  8. Business cases for WhiteBoard

AgriHub CZ&SK project will support communication of ongoing innovation experiments (IEs) as well as new IEs discovered during organising INSPIRE Hackathon with farmers. Its aim is to build bridges between the farming sector and research projects to make a better linkage with current research with farmers’ needs.

During the months of October – December, when the hackathon will take place, we offer you a unique opportunity to try out our new technologies and infrastructures, which will be open to all developers. At the same time, it will be possible to apply and integrate technologies into projects at your own discretion and experience. INSPIRE Hackathon opens up opportunities for cooperation in the development of various solutions with participants from all over the world, and at the same time offers everyone the enrichment of their own experience.

On 15 November 1:30 PM CET, you can participate in the 𝗔𝗴𝗿𝗶𝗛𝘂𝗯 𝗜𝗡𝗦𝗣𝗜𝗥𝗘 𝗛𝗮𝗰𝗸𝗮𝘁𝗵𝗼𝗻 𝟮𝟬𝟮𝟭 𝗞𝗶𝗰𝗸-𝗼𝗳𝗳 𝗪𝗲𝗯𝗶𝗻𝗮𝗿!
