Virtual Hackathon

supported by EIT Manufacturing Co-Location Center East

Once again Infineon Austria has come up with an exciting challenge for Startups, Makers and Students to take part in.
Together with you we aim to innovate in the field of Radar technology. Your ideas that make life smarter, safer and greener can be executed from virtually everywhere as our experts support you online throughout this virtual hackathon across Europe. Show us what you can accomplish with radar technology by Infineon and in return get invited to our prestigious Summer or Winter School at our Austrian headquarter in Villach.



At Infineon we believe that giving technology the ability to "see" is best realized by the use of radar technology. We provide an extensive range of different radar systems for your application. Using the latest and greatest in the field of radar, we are excited for you to be the first ones to get their hands on Infineon's first completely autonomous 60GHz radar sensor.

We encourage you to think outside the box and come up with thought-provoking design blueprints that are in line with our core value - making the world smarter, safer and greener. Think about smart infrastructure, smart homes, smart appliances, security, light systems, multicopters, health and sports as your fields of possible radar applications.

For the second time being solely digital, this event will be accessible from all over Europe and we are encouraging you to join us from wherever you are located.

Start creating the future by hacking the latest Infineon technologies.
