The World Port Hackathon 2015 is coming up and Finaps will be joining!

“Innovation in the Port of Rotterdam will be the differentiating factor for the future” is what Mare Straetmans believes. No longer being the biggest World Port, Rotterdam wants to differentiate by being the best. The hackathon is THE place to search for new innovation to support this goal. The World Port Hackathon 2015 will be held in Rotterdam on the 4thand 5th of September at the RDM docks.

This Hackathon is organized in co-creation with companies and organizations of the Port of Rotterdam and the logistic industry. The challenges have been crafted based on workshops with stakeholders and participants, especially the Port Innovation Lab and Yes Delft. These challenges fall in different categories such as Logistics and connectivity, Infrastructure, and Safety and security.

We are not yet certain in which category we will compete but are very interested in exploring Safety and security through a combination of different challenges. A good opportunity to show what the capabilities of Finaps in combination with the Mendix platform are but also to have fun! During the event we will keep you posted about our progress via our twitter account @Finaps_.
