Co-UDlabs Hackathon 2021 - GENERAL PART - Day 1

Registration is closed

23 Nov 2021 09:00 - 11:30 (CET)

Co-UDlabs is a H2020 EU-funded project with nine partners from seven European countries and a research infrastructure of 17 installations. The project aims to use its facilities, expertise, and research agenda to develop innovative ideas, methods, and technologies in urban drainage sustainability and resilience. We have a Transnational Access call open: user groups can already submit proposals for free-of-charge research stays at any of our facilities for up to three months.

This Hackathon seeks path-breaking insight on and solutions to the most outstanding problems and challenges that urban drainage systems are facing today.

The Hackathon looks for ideas and solutions in these UD fields and issues:

  • Surface run-off and pollution
  • Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS)
  • In-sewer processes
  • Assets performance

At the Hackaton, you will be able to present your idea, get to know the facility providers and discuss in detail the added value of our installations, and seek partners and new team members for a more detailed Transnational Access (TA) proposal.
The best idea will be awarded with a short visit to their facility of choice, so that you can streamline and improve your TA proposal.
