“Innovation is the ability to see change as an opportunity, not a threat.” Global Warming, Natural Calamities, Climate Change and Sustainability are not words, we have come across for the first time. In recent years, problems arising due to increasing population and pollution have become quite evident and it becomes increasingly important for us to tackle such challenges through innovation.

Reducing pollution and finding “clean” environmental solutions to improve the quality of life is an integral part of any approach to address climate change. Tell us how your solution can help towards a safer environment by promoting and ensuring clean air and water are available to people. Utilize technology to build smart solutions to track and improve the quality of breathable air and water supplies around the globe. Help in tracking and lessening greenhouse gas (GHG) effects to decrease global warming and create a sustainable future by developing efficient solutions. Help improvising natural disaster control, pollution control, waste disposal mechanisms and much more. Ideate innovative sustainable solutions to ease exposure to non-renewable resources.

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact Healthcare and Medication industries at an unprecedented scale globally. The sudden emergence of new COVID-19 variants posed a threat to the already burdened healthcare system. The pandemic changed the healthcare paradox with newer workplace and societal challenges faced by the healthcare personnel.

Through this hackathon, we are looking for innovative solutions to improve the healthcare and medication facilities around the world. The idea is to provide transformational medical technologies and services to meet the demand for increased access, enhanced quality, and more affordable healthcare for everyone. How can we transform physical touchpoints into touchless, seamless but still personal and trustworthy digital healthcare experiences? Make a difference by building working prototypes on unique industry problems of the Healthcare Space.

The fundamental economic problem is the issue of scarcity but unlimited wants. An underlying feature of economics is concerned with dealing how to allocate the resources in society to make the most efficient and fair use of resources. Identify how internet can be used to save the time it takes to produce a good or deliver a service.

While many industries can benefit from IoT technology, the travel and tourism sector are particularly well-placed to reap the rewards, because Internet of Things can enable further automation, more personalization, and a greater customer experience. How do you think the various cultural challenges can be enhanced digitally?

How do you think citizens can avail themselves of Government services (without visiting a government office) through the Internet with the help of various services? Design and propose solutions that will help the government to connect more openly with its citizens, engage with them, share information, and deliver services more quickly and effectively.

Build smart products that can help to maintain stability for our changing economy. Unleash the power of digital natives, gen z, to co-create a thriving digital economy and culture.

Education has changed drastically, with the rise of e-learning, whereby teaching is undertaken remotely and on digital platforms, making distant learning solutions increasingly important. The sports industry that relies heavily on the personal touch of a trainer has also been affected greatly due to the pandemic. Effective knowledge transfer also considers the understanding of the learner and proper evaluation mechanisms help enumerate the process, thereby making it an important aspect.

Businesses and Institutes all over the globe are facing the problem of managing their resources in this new work-from-home setup. Training employees to have sound technical knowledge is a time consuming and challenging task. Identify the gaps that are present and come up with holistic solutions for similar problems.

From an educational, workplace, and sports perspective, you need to explore and keep at the forefront of what is happening in the world, search for unique opportunities and listen to the user’s needs until you discover a meaningful solution.
