5Gthon is looking for innovators who love challenges and are not afraid of the unknown. It is looking for smart solutions using the potential of 5G networks to change the future of our cities!
In a bit less than one week, a weekend ideathon called 5Gthon will kick off. Anyone who can come up with a smart solution for one of the given Smart Cities topics within one weekend can join. Participants will be tasked with a detailed proposal on how to improve life in Czech cities in several specific areas using new technologies with the use of 5G networks. 5Gthon will culminate on 22 February with a final conference, expert lectures and a presentation of the competition proposals and with the announcement of the winners. The event is organised by the Ministry of Regional Development together with the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Czech Republic. The co-organisers are SIT Port, Hack Prague, CzechInvest and czechstartups.org. The event is also supported by various partners.
The competition (ideathon) is designed for innovative individuals, who together, will form agile teams that will look for interesting solutions on selected topics during the weekend ideathon (18-20.2). Both university students from different disciplines and startup enthusiasts, as well as established teams all kind of companies will apply. There is no limit and the goal is clear – to find innovations that can improve our world and most importantly our cities.
5Gthon is the final event of the project Supporting 5G Networks in Smart Cities, as a timid pioneer in the development of smart applications and building digital infrastructure in the Czech Republic. The aim of the ideathon is to find smart solutions for the development and future of Czech cities using applications connected in the 5G network.
