Increasing quality of life, future & competitiveness through
the Internet of Things (IoT) for a connected North Thuringia.

The current HIKEathon aims to use IoT technologies to develop approaches and ideas for a Smart Region in the Nordhausen district.

In doing so, we bring technology, infrastructure and community concerns into harmony. We focus on solutions for challenges such as mobility, energy efficiency, environmental monitoring, healthcare, education, emergency management, digital participation, waste management and participatory urban planning.
