The PALFINGER Group is inviting everyone interested in developing innovative ideas to participate in a hackathon for the purpose of expanding our product and service portfolio by incorporating digital features. The goal of this initiative is to offer our customers added benefits and efficiency in the use of our products, in keeping with our promise of “Lifetime Excellence”.
A hackathon (a portmanteau of the words “hack” and “marathon”) describes the joint development of innovative concepts for hardware and software. PALFINGER’s hackathon will take place on 4th and 5th March 2017 and is primarily directed towards university students and technology start-ups as well as, more generally, all interested innovators. We expect around 100 participants, which would make the event the largest hackathon ever to be held in Austria. The aim of the hackathon is to raise customer benefits quickly and systematically through digitalization.
