The IoT Hackathon, which took place in Berlin on October 29-30, 2019 and was organized by SmartX partner Sourcebook, aimed to raise the smart textiles market innovation potential amongst European start-ups and SMEs.

The inspiring event featured ideation sessions, during which teams had the opportunity to be supported by experienced coaches and lab partners, who would help them develop project plans for their funding phase. They were teamed up with software and hardware engineers, business developers, and designers in order to enrich their initial solutions with competences spanning technology, business, and collaboration.

Coaches included representatives from SmartX partner organizations: Textile ETP, Texfor, DSP Valley, Steinbeis-Europa-Zentrum, University of Borås, DITF Denkendorf, IFM, Citeve, CITC, EuraMaterials, Centexbel, and Città Studi –

Our hackathon participants also had the chance to network and meet potential partners to kickstart R&D projects, scale up their concepts, and gain application readiness for the upcoming SmartX funding calls starting in late November 2019.

The event was an important stepping stone for the SmartX programme during its early phase. By exploring the methodology and results of the hackathon, the consortium partners will gain a deeper understanding of the value chain set-up and end market needs for successful smart textiles innovation.

The results of the first hackathon will help fine-tune SmartX coaching methods, future workshops, and hackathons.
