About the Hackathon

Look forward to a varied weekend full of challenges, networking and exciting insights into our work. Together with our staff and our partners from the International Center for Networked, Adaptive Production, you will face the challenges of Industrie 4.0 in a real manufacturing environment and use your coding knowledge, technical skill and team spirit to solve them.








We provide you with various tasks on the topics of deep learning, 5G, smart devices and worker assistance. We'll tell you what they are soon on this website.
