SEA-EU Makeathon

We are all concerned by making our planet and our society more sustainable. Lets begin by ourselves on our campuses by applying project ideas related to campus life for the SEA-EU. Make our campus a better place, have fun and win great prizes!

SEA-EU Makeathon is part of the SEA-EU Alliance initiative and is co-organized by University of Brest, University of Cadiz, University of Gdansk, University of Malta and University of Split with the support of University of Kiel. Participating teams will have support of innovation experts to design, test, reiterate, and enhance their services or products developed through the Makeathon.
