Cluj-Napoca International Space Apps Challenge 2021
Welcome to NASA International Space Apps Challenge 2021 Cluj-Napoca!
For the sixth time in a row, Cluj-Napoca will take part in the largest global hackathon! Join us on October 2-3 for the 2021 International Space Apps Challenge, virtual edition!
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and in the interest of our global community’s health and safety, this year’s hackathon will be again an all-virtual event.
Our theme for this year’s event is “The power of ten”. It represents the impact we are committed to making through the SpaceApps Challenge. With the partnership of 10 space agencies, we can expand our family of innovators and dreamers even further and therefore make an even bigger impact as a collective group. It is up to us to build a better and brighter future.
What is NASA International Space Apps Challenge?
Space Apps is a global weekend hackathon, engaging tens of thousands of problem solvers each year across the globe. The event embraces collaborative problem solving with a goal of producing relevant open-source solutions to address global needs applicable to both life on Earth and life in space.
Who can participate in the hackathon?
Space Apps is for everyone! This includes those who have never “hacked’ before! All passionate problem solvers are encouraged to join – students, experts, engineers, makers, artists, and storytellers. While some of our challenges are technical, others ask you to use your artistic skills, your business acumen, and your historical imaginations! In other words, you do not need to be a coder or data expert to be part of Space Apps. In fact, the most diverse teams are often the most successful.
The event is free and open to the public. Participation is limited to a number of 100 participants.
You will work together over the weekend to develop an innovative solution to your challenge (be it a website, a mobile app, a concept or a hardware prototype). Your team will submit the solution to a jury of experts. The best solutions will then compete on a global level!
