We will dive into real-world challenges in the urban food cycle, from soil to harvest to table to toilet and back to the soil. Challenges are opportunities for innovation and creative solutions. We will explore new applications of existing and appropriate technology, creating local human scale solution in an industrial world.

The aim is to produce a working prototype within the time frame of the Hackathon. The prototype may be serve as a starting point for further development with your team, a challenge owner or sponsor.

All projects will be showcased on the Mindhoven website, where it will get exposure and opportunities may develop to bring your design “to market”.

There will be prizes to win, either in cash or in-kind.


The Urban Farming Hacakthon is of interest to anyone in urban agriculture, design, art, hardware and software technology, business development and marketing.

Especially young professionals and seniors are invited to participate. We aim at a good balance between men and women, between locals/expats from the Eindhoven region and the wider Euro region, including Belgium, Luxemburg and Germany in particular.


  • Great opportunity to meet and work with people you wouldn’t normally come across in your own network.
  • Be inspired and achieve something practical beyond your familiar comfort zone. The rush of discovery!
  • Great food and great company.
  • Go home with new friends and new business opportunities.
