The 2021 H2O Hack is offering the opportunity for researchers, entrepreneurs and innovators to make a difference, solve real life water problems across Australia – and win prizes!

Are you or someone you know working on a solution that could solve these problems:

  • Explore how space-based technologies can be used to quantify water management challenges across Australia
  • Create a space-technology based idea which improves water use efficiency in Australia’s agriculture, fisheries and forestry industries and has potential to be commercialised
  • Create a forum for industry, academia and government representatives to exchange perspectives and collaborate
  • Enable research to be applied in novel ways to create real-world impacts

What’s in it for you:

  • FREE to participate in
  • Up to $20,000 cash in prize money!
  • You will have the opportunity to be mentored by experts from a range of different background and be inspired from a collection pre-recorded videos from long list well-known speakers
  • Highly ranked teams will also have the opportunity to access the Idea2Impact workshop program and coworking at CBRIN, attend CEAT-mediated workshops to develop linkages with researchers and industry, and participate in the CEAT Innovation Hub

Who can sign up:

  • You must be 18 years of age or over, and be part of a team of between 3-5 people
  • This event will appeal to you if you are interested in water, space technology, agriculture technology and up for an exciting challenge
