Empack challenges students with 'Packathon'
A Packathon? It is a derivative of Hackaton. This concept originally came from the IT world, hence the name (hack and marathon). A hackathon is an event in which teams of participants work non-stop to come up with solutions for submitted cases within a short period of time.
Making packaging more sustainable requires that professionals have relevant knowledge and skills in practice. Students from HvA, HAS and The Hague University of Applied Sciences are working together on new mockups on 31 March and 1 April. They are challenged to bring a refreshing idea within 48 hours and to test this immediately against the Dutch packaging industry.
More information about the practical case will follow soon!
