“Future Food Challenge”
Join us to design and discuss scientific solutions for problems associated with world feeding, from the production of food itself to its influence on human health and the environment!
On the day of the event you will be given a specific challenge under the theme for which you will have to design a solution.
Participants will team up to develop a solution based on scientific evidence and processes within 12 hours. The projects will be presented at the end of the challenge to a jury of talented researchers.
This hackathon is organized by COLife in partnership with Ciência Viva, and with the support of the Oeiras Municipality and Portugal Bugs.

The winning team will receive a monetary prize of 750€, the chance of doing an internship in COLife institutions for each member of the team plus visits to the other institutions, and access cards to any Ciência Viva science center.
