Hackathon 2023

Think. Code. Feed the world. Harvesting technology to feed the world.

As a student, you have the chance to be part of a significant goal: feeding the world in a sustainable and healthy way. By participating the Hackathon, you can collaborate with experts from the greenhouse industry and work on difficult technical challenges at the heart of this sector.


Join the Hackathon to make a contribution!

For MBO, HBO & WO students.

Much experimentation, demo testing and innovative crossover solutions are being developed. ‘Robotics’ innovations and solutions illustrate the state-of-the-art tech developments in greenhouse horticulture. Be it sensoring, robotics, data or artificial intelligence.

To develop all this technology we need you, students of all levels to help us in this quest!

We would like to invite you to participate in the Hackathon at Tomatoworld on November 8&9 2023.

During the Hackathon students will work towards solutions that help growers to solve their manual labour problems. This will be done under the mentorship of a greenhouse grower, robotics engineers and business developers.

The Hackathon focuses on both the technical challenges (robotics, AI, control systems as well as the business development side of these solutions.

This is a great opportunity to increase your skills and knowledge. When you join the Hackathon, you can make a difference and ensure that we can continue to enjoy healthy food in a sustainable way.

So what are you waiting for? Sign up for the Hackathon on November 8 & 9, 2023 using the link below.
