Coming in August: 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.
Join the Connected Reindeer Hackathon 2022, Aug 25–29, 2022, to
innovate technical application concepts, demos or business models to
prevent traffic accidents caused by reindeer!
