During the Y4PT Transport Hackathons, participants work together to solve major transport-related challenges while employing technology in an inventive way. The solutions have not only technological merits, but target profound social boundaries as well, in efforts to inspire more liveable cities.
The Y4PT Global Transport Hackathon starts at the local level, where Y4PT promotes the organisation of Local Transport Hackathons around the world. Winners from each local hackathon of the 3rd Season (2018-2019) will join other Sweden-based hackers in Stockholm, at the next edition of the Y4PT Global Transport Hackathon to compete in a final round for unveiling the world’s best ground-breaking transport solutions.
Many different profiles such as universities, youth groups, ICT companies, transport operators, authorities, start-up mentors, innovation centres and hackers have been called to collaborate with Y4PT to be part of this leading transport innovation contest, acknowledged by the European Mobility Week Secretariat as one of the best practices of 2017 to unlock new opportunities to expand, diversify and renew your organisation’s portfolio of products and services.
