The overall winners, who won in the Responsible Consumption category, took the main prize of 500 EUR provided by Dinit Card Services, while the best idea award went to Zhaneta Koceva, Berna Asanova and Marija Zhivkovikj.


Other teams also showed great effort and produced amazing solutions, moreover some of them were also invited to further meetings with sponsors to discuss possible internships.

We would like to thank all the companies and organizations, that have shown interest in networking with our students: Dinit Card Services, Trapview, Mistral, Aquarium Piran, InnoRennew CoE and HICUP Lab. Some of their representatives have taken on mentoring roles during the competition and formed the jury team for the final project evaluation.

»The hardest part of organizing was coming up with a competition concept, that would be interesting both to students and companies involved. Also getting sponsors, but we were glad to have had a lot of companies dedicate their otherwise free time to our Hackathon. What made us happy is that the company representatives were happy with the work Famnit students produced and we helped students network with potential employers,« said the GDSC representatives.
