The objective of the Hackathon, which is aimed at research and development groups from universities and higher education institutions in Latin America, the Caribbean, and Europe, will be to propose innovative and creative solutions to the challenges posed in the two winning concept notes of the Ideathon.

Participating teams will have to select one of the challenges proposed in the Ideathon - "Satellite Data Interpreter - SADAI" or "Platform for visualization and interpretation of climate data to favor family farming in Latin American countries" (check the description on the Hackathon page) - and work on its innovative development.  Later, each group will have to present a final product that evidences the development of the challenge and its possible implementation.

An expert panel will evaluate every final product and select the best three developments proposal.

The "Copernicus Innovation Development" will be held online and feature synchronous and asynchronous sessions, including training, mentoring, and working sessions and simultaneous activities at the opening and closing.
