Join our Conference & Innovation Hackathon in Timisoara


UrbanizeHub and KeepItSimple have been working hard towards organising a groundbreaking event that puts connected communities into the spotlight, made up of a Conference and an Innovation Hackathon on two main tracks: The Future of Manufacturing and The Future of Communities.

Connecting Doers with Opportunity will take place in Timisoara, between 6-8 October 2017. This will also be the first in a series of Urban Talks Conferences, which UrbanizeHub will bring to multiple Romanian cities starting this year. 

The purpose of the event is to provide solutions for both local & global challenges by promoting a knowledge-sharing culture and creating a global community of doers.

The idea was born out of a simple need of connecting innovators, creatives, tech enthusiasts, community leaders, companies and citizens who share the same values and dream of a better world.

Connecting Doers with Opportunity – Themes & Hackathon Details

We start on Friday, October 6th, with the Urban Talks Conference day, during which 18 speakers with diverse backgrounds from around the world will talk about four main themes:

  1. Social Sector & Community
  2. Education
  3. Future Cities
  4. Technology & Innovation

Friday will end with a Networking Party, where speakers and participants will be able to form meaningful connections and embrace opportunities for recruitment, partnerships and knowledge-sharing.

The unique component of the event is the Innovation Hackathon, which will generate the proper context for participants to generate IT solutions for local, national and global challenges. The two main tracks of the hackathon will be The Future of Manufacturing (based on the blockchain technology) and The Future of Communities. 

The Hackathon will spread over two full days (October 7th & 8th) and will reward the best projects with prizes worth 10,000 Euros in cryptocurrency at the end.
