Green Tech Jam 2017

Here are some impressions of the Green Tech Jam at the Science Tower in Graz: highly motivated student teams develop innovative solutions for a green future!

From 2nd to 3rd May 2017, the first Green Tech Jam (organized by TU Graz and Green Tech Cluster) saw 20 students get together in four interdisciplinary teams to develop innovative and creative solution concepts to real-world problems posed by green tech companies.

After 20 hours of intensive work on their projects, the student teams presented the outcomes in final pitches to an expert jury with members of each sponsor company (binder+co, Energie Steiermark, Energie Graz, Eologix, Komptech, Redwave, Saubermacher).

Overall, the jury members were very impressed with each of the presented solutions, which ranged from data analysis of wind turbine sensors to eco-friendly pipes for better air quality as well as applications for smart home devices. The winning team received 3000 Euros for their visionary concept of “Smart Living” integrating Big Data and Artificial Intelligence. .

Congratulations to all participating students!
