On Tuesday 31 August Events Bureau and CIC Rotterdam jointly hosted a hackathon with the Rotterdam School of Management and 150 of their students. CIC’s offices became THE space to find solutions to global challenges, focused on the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
After a short kick-off presentation, the 25 teams were taken to their separate office spaces where they worked tirelessly on their problem which was concluded the next day at their campus. The buzz around the 3rd and 4th floor of the Groot Handelsgebouw, where we are based, was wonderful to hear.
This was the first collaboration between Events Bureau, CIC Rotterdam and Rotterdam School of Management and we were thrilled to welcome such a dedicated group of students. Safety was of course a top priority for us and in order to accommodate this number of students within the current restrictions, we used the QR code Corona check app, thus creating a smooth, safe registration process.
We’re proud to have been able to co-host this special day, introduce students to our co-working spaces and to the innovation community who work here.
