Special Hackathon at the Technical University of Munich

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyone's life - people are losing their jobs and are being isolated far away from their loved ones, businesses are experiencing dramatic losses, healthcare workers are sacrificing their health and governments are imposing unprecedented measures in order to help fight the virus.

We here at TUM could not stand by during these challenging times and therefore decided to organize an additional, special online edition of hackaTUM to develop solutions for many of the challenges posed by COVID-19.

Join us and make your contribution to solving the Corona crisis. You will also have a unique chance to get mentorship from our leading industry partners and win some great prizes!
