SPEAR co-organises the S^2 Hack4Energy HACKATHON



A joint SPEAR-SIT4Energy event

The rapid progression of the Information and Communication Technology transforms the electrical grid into a new paradigm called Smart Grid. Smart Grid enables the development of smart energy-related applications, considering both efficiency potentials in the local energy production and consumption. However, at the same time, this revolution raises severe cybersecurity issues since Smart Grid is characterized by multiple heterogeneous and interconnected technologies. In this context, the SPEAR (https://www.spear2020.eu/) and SIT4Energy (https://sit4energy.eu) projects join forces towards co-organizing a hackathon event that will focus on innovative approaches on energy-related cyber-security and end-user engagement, respectively.


The hackathon event will consist of 4 challenges (2 per project) and will last two days on 23-24 October 2019.


The hackathon is available online through the F6S platform: https://www.f6s.com/s2hack4energy. For any parties that would like to attend physically, you will be able to do so at CERTH premises (6th km Harilaou-Thermis, Thessaloniki, Greece - https://goo.gl/maps/Q6cjk31BRHiSPuLn6). So get your laptop, and get ready.


All you have to do is to get a ticket for the S2Hack4Energy event by the F6S platform: https://www.f6s.com/s2hack4energy.


To make the day even more exciting the winners will take home several prizes:
