Frequently Asked Questions
Who can take part in the CASSINI Hackathons?
Any person of legal age who resides in an EU Member State, Norway, Switzerland, or Iceland.
How can I register?
Register before 5 May on the TAIKAI platform
Do I have to register with a team?
No, not at all. All participants must register as an individual and form the team after registering using the hackathon platform. Instructions will be provided after the registration process is complete.
Do I have to know how to code to participate?
No, we encourage anyone with a passion for entrepreneurship, nature, and EU space technologies to participate. Bring your creative, business or design skills to a team!
Can I apply if I have no knowledge of Copernicus, Galileo, or EGNOS data and signals?
Yes! We will provide you with the relevant training and access to data that you will need to succeed - even without prior knowledge.
Can I apply if I don’t have a concept in mind prior to the hackathon?
Yes! Before the hackathon comes The Big Idea campaign. This week-long series of events will set the scene and allow participants to meet and form teams (if they haven't already done so). This provides the opportunity for teams and participants to brainstorm ideas, share thoughts and pitch their ideas. It is not required to have a concept or idea in mind prior to application.
If there is no hackathon organised in my country, can I apply to the nearest one?
Yes. The second CASSINI Hackathon will be held online, and you may apply from outside the organiser’s country. Just select that hackathon location you want to join when you register.
