It was impressive to see people all over the world solving the challenges we have here in Finland. Technology is huge potential for us.

Welcome to unique open infra hackathon #Solution2021
Construction productivity has been low for a long time compering to other industry. At the same time it is in the middle of a dozen demands: environmental efficiency, the cost efficiency and the more demanding end-user requirements.
To tackle these challenges we have to find out new ways to do things. Today technology and a new way of collaboration offers a great opportunity for this. We need new ideas, innovations and solutions outside of the construction business to solve these challenges. Potential is huge for all of us.
Participants have 40 hours time to solve challenges of infrastructure construction.
Fast track to success. #Solution2021 combines global hackers, startups and companies and creates unique innovative solutions.
