Participants from Ukraine either with full teams or individually, can join the makeathon online and join teams via an online matchmaking event happening before the main event.

The focus topic this year are:

🪵 Modular, circular and climate neutral construction.

🪵 Technologies for rapid design, engineering and production.

🪵 Smart valorization of biomass in construction and long-lasting products.

🪵 Roll-up, Fold-up, Flip-up, Pack-up – products that fit perfectly into, onto or next to modular buildings.
Read more about the the topics under the “Focus topics” tab.

What to expect?

🌳You can look forward to spending 48 hours with people that share the same interest and passions. To work together to tackle challenges that result in new ways to utilize wood better as a building material and through that lessen the environmental effects of the construction industry. 🪵♻️

🌳You will have the best workspaces and mentor to assist with your prototype.

🌳There will be a prize pool to support the implementation of best prototypes 🤩.

💫 That is what great ideas are made of 💫
