MarineTech 2021

What is MarineTech?

MarineTech Hackathon will focus on the innovation, development and implementation of new and existing digital technology into the growing digitisation of the Maritime industry. We are focusing on needed solutions for SMART technologies, connectivity, ocean sustainability, exploration, and science within the deep wide big blue.

Why MarineTech?

Maritime 4.0 is here and the marine world needs to accelerate the use of available digital technology to accelerate innovation in order to boost the marine industry. We are bringing together marine engineers, scientists, industry players, government bodies, researchers and technologists to work together. Innovation and resilience is key!

AgriTechaTH.0n 2021

What is AgritechaTH.0n?

AgritechaTH.0n will focus on the innovation, development and implementation of new and existing digital technology into the growing digitisation of the UK AgriTech industry. We are focusing on needed solutions for farms, farmers and suppliers across the UK.

Why Agriculture?

Farming 4.0 is here and the UK needs to accelerate the digitisation of their agricultural industry as we are falling behind the need to be fully digitised, more efficient and the quest to have net zero emissions by 2040. Innovation and resilience is key!

International Women’s Day 2021

What is HackHerTH0n?

HackHerTH.0n focuses on women empowerment and gender equality in the workplace. With the opportunity for female professionals to showcase their skills and talents.  At TH.0, we encourage all our audiences to participate in Hackathons and we make it a point to promote all-women teams. 

Why HackHerTH0n?

Minority of women are represented in the STEM field which results in less participation of females in digital solutions that shapes the future. Attending a one-of-a-kind  HackHerTH0.n is a great way you can build your connections, implement innovations solutions,  learn new skills and showcase your Talent with the aim to benefit our communities and society .

CHALLENGES

#HackHerTH0n

Challenge 1

Open Source Education

Access to education is limited by factors such as poverty, geographic locations, and most of all – Gender. Gender discrimination is rampant in the education sector and it’s time we use the power of technology to bridge this gap.

Challenge 2

Skills Change

In the age of digital revolutions, women must keep enhancing and updating their technical skills to succeed in the workplace. What solutions can we develop that empowers women’s access to learning resources around the world?

Challenge 4

Crowd Funding

Women are shattering the glass ceiling but for this trend to continue, we need more women in positions of power in the corporate world. What solutions can we develop to boost women-owned businesses through better funding opportunities?

CHALLENGES

#MarineTech

Maritime 4.0

How can we support design, engineering, performance, and activity, more appropriately? As the evolution of the industry is being enabled by the ongoing evolution of smarter and more deeply integrated machines, systems, data and people, what can be done to support this and make our journey into a smother voyage?
Can you re-engineer your thinking as well as your technology in unlocking new efficiencies with new attitudes?

Connectivity

How can we implement continually evolving technology that focuses on Information Flow, Satellites, 5G Maritime, Tracking and Services (ship tracking, port terminals & connected containers), Maritime Blockchains (digitalisation of the supply
chain & maritime insurance) , AI & Automation (progression towards the autonomous ship & optimising the logistics track) and Cyber Security protection against cyber-attacks & cyber threats?

Oceans of Opportunity

Approximately 70% of the earth’s surface is covered by water; challenges still remain in reference to underwater exploration and research.

Can you help to promote a further understanding of the underwater environment and to encourage the development of techniques and tools to explore, study, and exploit the oceans?

Ocean Sustainability

How can we use the ocean, its tidal cycle, and currents as an alternative source of clean energy? Capturing valuable data is essential. By using for instance sensors and IoT, how can we modernize the current practices for more optimized harvesting techniques that follow international laws, stopping pollution at a large scale, and enable surveillance? How can we utilize open platforms and blockchain technology?

CHALLENGES

#Agrithechathon

AgriTech Innovation on the Farm

How can we use and enhance technology with the aim of improving yield, efficiency, waste reduction and the maximisation of profitability?

What products, services or applications can be implemented to improve various processes on the farm and in the digitalisation of the supply chain?

Soil Productivity

Being one of the core essences of the Earth’s fertility, how can we protect, improve and enhance our current usage of soil management? What technology and processes can aide decisions and management regarding tillage, fertilization, crop rotation, plant disease, irrigation, and drainage, as well as exploring the development and evolution of hydroponics?

Smart/Precision/Vertical Farming

As the digital and connected world continues to expand with new and ongoing technological innovations, such as leveraging the cloud, big data, satellites, the Internet of Things (IoT), drones, 3D printing, artificial intelligence (AI), robotics and automation solutions, how can the agricultural industry further adopt these new technological advances to increase productivity and efficiency whilst protecting the environment?

Agri BioTech

How can we further develop the scientific techniques used to improve plants, animals and microorganisms to provide farmers with the tools and disciplines that can increase production, make it cheaper and more manageable? What can be done to produce greater yields and quality from food crops? What can be done to continue using molecular science to build up natural resistances to certain diseases, whilst ensuring our safety?
