Klaipeda Science and Technology Park
Lithuanian Maritime Cluster
International port technology hackathon PORTATHON will take place in the port city of Klaipėda for the fifth year in a row – this time on October 6-8. Every year, the initiative gathers a wide international community of innovators, who dedicate 48 hours to unlocking the presented challenges and generating innovative solutions.
4 thematic directions
The main organizers of the event are the Klaipėda Science and Technology Park and the Lithuanian Maritime Cluster, along with long-standing hackathon partners and new supporters from Lithuania and abroad. This year, the hackathon will also stand as the flagman of the international project Blue Supply Chains and will seek to respond to the challenges related to the creation and development of sustainable supply chains in the Baltic Sea Region countries.
PORTATHON challenges represent problems and questions that are extremely relevant for Klaipėda and other ports, businesses operating in them, as well as residents of port cities. Challenges are presented and grouped according to consistently refined thematic directions – these are logistics, energy, sustainable environment of ports, port cities and ecosystems, digital solutions for the maritime industry.
For the second year in a row, the initiative will be implemented in a hybrid format: individual participants and teams will meet in the Klaipėda Science and Technology Park and other physical locations in foreign countries, as well as online.
