This hackathon is sponsored by EIT RawMaterials and co-hosted by the Digital Publishing Lab at the Oulu University of Applied Sciences and the Oulu Mining School at the University of Oulu. The event is being organized in collaboration with two other hackathons focusing on similar challenges - one at Trinity College Dublin in Ireland and the other at KU Leuven in Belgium.
The Oulu University of Applied Sciences is a leader in interdisciplinary innovation and strongly connected to the City of Oulu's technology industry heritage. The Digital Publishing Lab is a unique full-time, curricular program that brings together interdisciplinary teams of students to prototype and validate new digital content, products and services. This program has been hosting various education innovation-themed hackathons since 2015.
The Oulu Mining School at the University of Oulu aims to integrate scientific disciplines along the raw materials value chain from exploration to mining and mineral processing.
