Winners Space Tech Hackaton Europe 2021

17 december 2021

The SpaceTech Europe Online Hackathon happening the first weekend of December 2021 was a huge success, hosted by Garage48 and mentors coming from organisations such as SBIC Noordwijk and PLNT. For an exciting 48 hours eight teams from across the world came together to form creative space-based solutions to current problems. We were excited by the teams who attended, it being fully online due to the current situation. Let’s put a spotlight on the winners.  

1. The first place award went to Flexicons, a project to build permanent structures on Mars. The team did amazingly well planning out the project goals for the coming years.  

2. Second place award went to Parapilot, who developed a controller to auto-navigate a paraglider to reclaim rockets after launch.   

3. Third place was awarded to Dandelightion, who took a creative angle on building materials and assembly of structures by robots. 

The prizes teams could win included mentoring by ESA BIC Estonia and Slovak Space Office, offers to join the CyRIC and Gravity Incubator programme, and lastly tickets to sTARTUp Day 2022 in Estonia August 2022. 

NL Space Campus is looking forward to hopefully a real life version next year and if you are attending the sTARTUp Days in Estonia, make sure to have a look out for the winners of 2021 SpaceTech Europe Hackaton!
