This year, the 4th World Port Hackathon will be organized. And… the Hackathon goes international! MPA Singapore is the partner port of the WPH2016 edition. We will collaborate on today’s and future challenges within the port industry. The challenges are defined in co-creation with the port community and the partner ports.
Vibrant energy, loads of data, creative thinking, collaboration, inspiration, coding, innovation, and above all fun are key during the Hackathon. Participate!
The 2016 World Port Hackathon edition focuses on 3 themes
Theme 1 Infrastructure & Logistics
“Effective use of infrastructure is key. A lot of time is wasted due to underutilisation of the available infrastructure and a lack of coordination between stakeholders. Nearly half of what we transport in the port is air and 25% of the container transport costs is due to paperwork. We challenge you to solve this problem and come up with innovative solutions!”

Theme 2 Energy & Climate
“New perspectives and innovation are key for the climate and energy challenges. Reduce, re-use and recycle. Big Data, Open Data and the IoT help in this transition. We need to collaborate for a better climate! Do you have genius ideas to provide smart solutions in this area?”
