Connected Reindeer Hackathon
Students in Finland, Sweden and Norway are invited to innovate technical application concepts, demos or business models to prevent traffic accidents caused by reindeer.
There are 3500–4500 traffic accidents that involve reindeer per year
in Finnish Lapland. These accidents cause loss and damage to reindeer
herders and vehicle owners.
