About this Event

Hackathon 59 Atma-Nirbhar Bharat 2020 (HAB-59) The recent event of the Government of India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi banning 59 Chinese apps has opened the doors and unlocked the opportunity for India’s youth to deploy their soft power in very focused ways. Modiji’s thought- “Going Vocal about Local to become Global should be India’s mantra”- needs to be personified into self-sufficient technology solutions thereby strengthening the country’s economy. Taking cognizance of this need, MIT Art, Design and Technology University, Pune- renowned university and, TERRE Policy Centre-an international NGO have forged the partnership and launched the ‘Hackathon 59 for Atma-nirbhar Bharat 2020 (HAB-59)’. It aims to reach out to young Indian tech-geeks who have a thirst and resolve to innovate, and who have a keen desire to unleash their potential with the fervor. It is directed to leverage India’s young talent for national good and service, at the time when it is required the most. Dr. Mangesh Karad, Executive President, MIT ADT University quotes, “Making it in India is like respecting the local talents to develop better than global-quality products and service”. Dr. Karad leads MIT ADT University- one of the top-ranking universities in India engaged in skilling the students in Technology, Designs, and Art. Having collaboration with renowned universities around the world, it has prioritized to provide integrated and value-added education to youth. The counterpart organization, TERRE Policy Centre, is engaged, among other environmental issues, with the network of global universities (Smart Campus Cloud Network-SCCN) for implementation of United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It is partnering with six UN organizations. When asked about the intent behind this Hackathon, Dr. Rajendra Shende- Chairman TERRE Policy Centre- expressed that, “The power of technology can be harnessed for social and environmental cause by challenging the potential of youth”. Dr. Shende believes that such competitive platforms can produce multiple solutions for the nation’s problem statements. Objectives of HAB-59: ?To provide a platform to young Indian talented groups in application development for IT-based solutions in multiple categories of 59 Chinese apps banned by the Government of India (GoI) ?To identify potential to secure applications that not only compete but work much better than those banned by GoI ?Connect the young talents with Ministries, Industries, and financial institutions for Entrepreneurial opportunities The teams of young developers will develop and submit applications in the broad categories of Social Applications, Business Application, and Office Productivity, Health, e-Learning, Entertainment and Games-based on thrust areas for innovation. These apps are expected to be more secure and user appealing as compared to those banned by GoI. The final round of HAB-59 will be hosted online on 13th Aug 2020 and 14th Aug 2020. In addition to cash prizes, the hackathon promises opportunities to set Start-up with AIC-MIT ADT University, Pune, to work as interns, project leaders, and social entrepreneurs with TERRE Policy Centre and to connect winners with industries and financial institutes for commercialization with speed.
