The challenge is to develop apps that help people be better informed, contextually and in real-time, to ultimately make smarter choices. In short, how can technology empower people to evaluate and understand risks to ultimately help them make smarter decisions.

Hack on the tech you like (wearables, connected devices, hardware or mobile) and we will hold workshops with cool partners during the weekend. We have 3 great prizes for the best apps: first 10 000€ cash prize, second prize of 3 MacBook Air laptops and third prize of 3 Apple Watches.

Science Hack Day brings together scientists, engineers, programmers, designers , creators and thinkers during a 2-day setting to combine science and creation into the maker philosophy. Since 2010, there have been more than 40 Science Hack Days across more than a dozen countries. “Science Hack Day is inherently about mashing up ideas, mediums, industries and people to create spark for future ideas, collaborations and inspirations,” says Ariel Waldman, Science Hack Day’s global director. “Science should be disruptively accessible. Science Hack Day empowers people from a variety of backgrounds to explore, participate in and build new ways of interacting with and contributing to science.” What makes Science Hack Day so unique is its openness and community. Events are set up with local support, but with a global network of followers. Anyone with an idea could share the principle online or during a pitch, and find a team to elaborate the concept at the Science Hack Day. Eindhoven had its first Science Hack Day in 2012 and it proved to be a success; it has become an annual event. On a sunny* morning of May 30th, 2015, the Science Hack Day Eindhoven starts with an introduction to the themes, the (un)purpose of the hackathon and a chance to get acquainted with fellow participants. MAD emergent art center creates a platform to collaborate on its Make the Future theme, that has 4 clusters: Life in Creation, Circular Life, Human Technology and Digital Life. The teams are challenged to develop concepts towards CONNECTING from within these themes – but are still free to choose their own path. Participation is free and participant catering is fully sponsored, but registration is required! Go to Eventbrite to register via this link --> http://shd040.eventbrite.nl/?aff=estw #SHD040 2015 will unfold at VDMA, The Hub for Expats, Vestdijk 25, Eindhoven.

The event’s goal is to bring together and introduce both non-GEOINT and GEOINT-savvy coders to interesting problems requiring inventive coding solutions. In addition to enabling participation from the non-GEOINT coding world, the end result will be a working code base that performs a specifically requested set of functions or provides answers as outputs. USGIF and its sponsor organizations will provide a list of optional tools and data links at the event. The winning team will receive a significant cash prize!
