The Challenge of 2022
Effects of Climate Change on coastal areas
Take up the challenge of Copernicus Hakcathon 2022 and face the challenges of Climate Change!
Use satellite images and data from the Copernicus Program and create innovative solutions, thanks to the use of new technologies, to reduce the effects of climate change on coastal areas!
Choose one of the 3 challenges and win the competition
Challenge # 1
The coastal areas, due to their conformation, are much more at risk than inland areas. In fact, in these areas, the effects of Climate Change can be devastating:
they often suffer significant material damage, which requires high compensation for insurance companies.
Teams that choose this challenge will have, with the support of satellite images and Copernicus data, to create new services, innovative products for the insurtech sector, with a view to:
• identify the areas with the highest risk of damage
• identify new indemnity models
• devising new methods of interaction between communities and insurance bodies
Challenge # 2
One of the challenges of digital innovation of the territory is the intelligent management of infrastructures both in emergency situations due to environmental disasters such as floods, medicane and storms, and for predictive maintenance activities.
Infrastructures such as:
• mobility networks (roads, railways, ports, airports)
• plants (power plants and networks, gas, renewable and non-renewable, aqueduct networks)
• digital telecommunication networks
They suffer damage and their use is compromised, causing enormous inconvenience to the population and businesses.
Teams that choose this challenge will have, with the support of satellite images and Copernicus data, to devise new services, innovative products dedicated to infrastructures, with a view to carrying out:
• analysis of critical areas
• ordinary and extraordinary maintenance of infrastructures
• management and maintenance of basic infrastructure activities
Challenge # 3
Smart Cities are becoming more and more relevant for the future. From a Climate Change perspective, smart cities also mean their ability to be resilient and to withstand extreme weather events (heat peaks, floods), to ensure the safety of citizens and the protection of structures.
One of the objectives of the Horizon Mission program is to stimulate 100 European cities to achieve climate neutrality by 2030. These cities will be an example for all those that have to reach the target by 2050.
The teams that choose this challenge will have, with the support of satellite images and Copernicus data, to devise new services, innovative products to plan, implement and monitor emissions reductions in a number of sectors, such as urban mobility, energy efficiency. in buildings, the monitoring of air and water pollution and waste management, with a view to carrying out:
• forecasting and intelligent management of areas with the highest risk of crisis due to extreme weather events (floods, fires, landslides, heat waves, other)
• improvement of energy efficiency
• waste management
• management of green areas
• decrease in pollution
• intelligent mobility management
