It’s time for ActInSpace®! Do you want to find out how space technologies and data can be used to solve real-life problems? Are you ready to team up and search for innovative solutions throughout the night? Then make sure to join our next Hackathon – the 4th Darmstadt edition of the international innovation contest ActInSpace®!
For the fourth time we will be bringing the international innovation contest to Darmstadt. Our local edition of the hackathon will be taking place on 18./19. November – within 24 hours, you will team up and design innovative solutions to real-life problems based on space technology and data. Our expert mentors from a broad variety of sectors will be providing support in the areas of Tech, Business, and Finance to ensure that you can develop your ideas in this short time-frame. At the end of the event each team will pitch their solutions in front of our jury panel – there will of course also be prizes to win!
We are planning the hackathon in a hybrid format, which means that, depending on restrictions at the time, you should be able to join either remotely or in person at our event space in the TIZ, which is generously being provided to us by the TIZ Darmstadt GmbH free of charge.
Further details on the event programme, available challenges, and the registration procedure will follow soon - if you want to make sure that you don't miss any announcements, register to our newsletter here (please note that you will need to activate your subscription to our newsletter through a link that will be sent to you in an automated e-mail after registering via this portal).

Let's come up with many brilliant ways to make use of space data and space technology at the ActInSpace® 2022 in Darmstadt!
ActInSpace® is an international innovation contest uniting over 100 cities across 5 continents. Designed for students but open to everyone, ActInSpace® is an event targeting creativity and aiming to cultivate student entrepreneurial initiatives. Teams have 24 hours to imagine and design innovative services and products derived from space technologies and space acquired data. This initiative is designed to consolidate the space sector’s vibrant image and show how space technologies are supporting applications that reach into all areas of our daily lives.
[please note that the ActInSpace Website still contains information from the previous hackathon, challenges and other information has not been updated yet, but we will let you know once our colleagues from Aerospace Valley have done so]
