Dublin Airport Smart Airport Hackathon ready for take-off at DCU

Dublin Airport’s Smart Airport Hackathon is scheduled for take-off at the DCU Alpha Innovation Campus from April 15th to 17th.

The three-day event will focus on invention and innovation to come up with solutions to improve the customer experience and passenger journey at Dublin Airport.

The upcoming Hackathon is looking for engineers, designers, entrepreneurs and airport customers to come together for a monster brain-storming and building session, sharing ideas and knowledge in order to find solutions that will enhance the customer experience at the airport. Dublin Airport have partnered with RTÉ Digital and Frontline Ventures, who will provide judges and mentors for the event.

Over 200 hackers are expected to take part with the winner collecting a prize of €7,000 and this year’s runners-up taking home a prize of €3,000. The event kicks off on Friday, April 15th at 3.00pm and the winning idea will be announced on Sunday evening at 7.00pm.
