Smogathon 2019: #BACKTOTHEROOTS

We're starting applications on 30th September 2019.

We look for a hero, who can beat the smog!

Over 92% of the world’s population inhales unhealthy air and over seven million people worldwide die prematurely every year because of smog. It needs to stop and we look for a hero, who could solve the problem of air pollution! Smogathon is an initiative aiming to fight the smog with innovations and technology. This year our idea is to get the best teams from all over the world to take part in data hackathon in Krakow and compete for 10 000 PLN in each category.
