El Sewedy Electric, an energy and infrastructure solution provider, The Knowledge Hub Universities (TKH), and Elsewedy Education’s initiative, the Innovation Hub, launched a clean and deep tech hackathon program named Climathon in partnership with Flat6Labs.
The Climathon core themes are Smart Cities, Agritech, Industry 4.0, and Energy & Water Management.
TKH will host the Climathon on its premises providing technical support and facilities for the program including labs, equipment, classrooms, and catering areas. Flat6Labs will provide participants with training and mentorship, alongside the onsite management.
The program aims to provide Coventry University students and El Sewedy Electric’s Graduate Development Program with an opportunity to present and pitch their innovative tech solutions addressing climate change.
“We are all responsible for fighting the environmental challenges our world is facing today and we -at El Sewedy Education and The Knowledge Hub Universities- are keen on providing youth with the skills and resources to be able to tackle such challenges through The Climathon. Partnering up with Flat6Labs and Elsewedy Electric will bring young brilliant minds together to elevate their ideas and solutions towards a sustainable future of our planet,” Ihab Salama, Chief Executive Officer at El Sewedy Education and Vice Chairman – TKH Board of Trustees, said.
Climathon will take place over 3 days, hosting up to 30 teams competing across a series of tailored sessions and interactive workshops.
