The #AttractYoung hackathon begins with inviting young people to share their view on the societal challenges that need to be addressed – or better – solved, by 2025.
The best applicants will be divided into international interdisciplinary teams. Each team will be composed of 5-7 members, bringing in different talents, knowledge, ideas, successes and backgrounds.
During the two-day hackathon teams will get support from carefully selected coaches and the group of detector experts.
Up to 10 #AttractYoung participants selected by the Panel will be awarded a 5-day visit to CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) / ESRF (European Synchrotron Radiation Facility) to further brainstorm on their ideas. All expenses paid.
In order to give you a head start in winning this immersive visit, distribute this information to your friends and contacts and tell them to mention your name when asked in the registration form: How did you hear about the #AttractYoung hackathon? The selected participant whose name will come more often as answer to the previous question will benefit from a bonus of points in the prize contest.
Keep on promoting the #AttractYoung in your network!
Good news: there is no registration fee for the #AttractYoung hackathon!
