CERN Hackathon

Event Description

We would like to share an initiative by CERN to our community of young professionals around Italy. There will be a very interesting hackathon in Trieste powered by Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste, INFN Trieste and ATTRACT.  This hackathon aims to gather a multi-disciplinary team of young professionals to solve critical challenges for the future in “imagining the detectors of the future”.

The hackathon will offer a creative space and a proven process to participants in an immersive experience of innovating beyond the frontiers of science. This will be supported by far reaching expertise of the renowned host organisations.

30 participants (chosen among the early birds submitters selected for #AttractYoung) will get their accommodation costs covered. The selected participants will still have to pay for their travel costs. Up to 10 #AttractYoung participants chosen by the Panel will be awarded a 5-day visit to CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) / ESRF (European Synchrotron Radiation Facility) to further brainstorm on their ideas. All expenses paid.

Please register here and find out more about the event if you are interested. A letter of recommendation to each selected participants having completed the Hackathon will be issued.

We encourage our members - especially those residing in Italy - to be part of this initiative and make your ideas come to reality with massive support from the renowned organisers.
