HPI School of
University of Potsdam
Our planet is in trouble, no doubt. But we think that by using the massive amount of data our world is producing we can solve the biggest problems on earth: pollution, global warming and natural disasters. We want to provide a place for creative ideas which will make our blue planet a better place to live.
For 24 hours of hacking, we will bring students from Berlin, Brandenburg and the rest of the world together in the HPI School of Design Thinking, located on our campus. By providing world class sponsors including workshops and access to their data and APIs, a tremendous amount of widgets, a great location and plenty of caffeine to fuel your brain we will create a space for creativity, inspiring ideas and a passion for trying out new things.
Interested? Come and share your dedication and skills with others, exchange knowledge and accomplish great things!

There are very few health tech hackathons striving to build useful applications with raw data, and we want to change that! For you it will be a chance to get in contact with our awesome partners and experiment with their data and gadgets.
Sure! As long as you are interested in health tech and 18 years or older we will be happy to welcome you! Any skill-level is welcome, hackathons should be a way to experience team-work and work on your own abilities.
Nope! HackHPI is a free event, with food and drinks provided by our partners.
