Between September 16 and 19, the entire weekend was spent in the spirit of sustainable mobility at the TIER Tech Hub downtown office. At the hackathon, the participants could develop their solutions in professional conditions, with which they would contribute to the development of the capital. TIER not only supported the event by providing the venue, the company’s experts also helped the teams as mentors.
TIER cooperated with the Budapest Transportation Center on several events within the framework of the European Mobility Week. Those interested could meet the company’s stand among the programs of the Car-Free Weekend in Fővám tér, and BKK held a hackathon team competition aimed at improving transportation in the downtown innovation center. Sustainable mobility and livable downtown in the competition announced on the subject, they were looking for creative ideas and innovative proposals that could make the city center even more livable in the long term. TIER’s development team works every day to change the urban lifestyle, so they were happy to receive the organizers’ inquiry.
“The hackathon, organized as part of the Hack the City competition series, provided an excellent opportunity to get to know the thoughts of city residents about life in Budapest. In addition to solving the tasks, it was also very important to come across ideas and thoughts that are worth taking forward – said Zoltán Tamás Halmos, the organizer of the event. – It is a great pleasure for us to have been able to work together with TIER’s innovation team, who also provided a professional venue for the competition.”
Meetings and professional events are regularly held in the office of TIER’s development center in Hungary, and the team also aims to become an open innovation workshop. The theme of the BKK Hackathon perfectly matches TIER’s expertise, which is why the company supported the event. On the spot, the contestants could get an insight into the work of the Tech Hub and develop their own ideas with the help of expert mentors.
