Pro Hackin’ project is being developed with the joint efforts of the four higher educational institutions (HEIs) and associate industrial partners.

HEIs consist of the engineering faculties/universities coming from Slovenia, Austria, Italy and Croatia. They will participate in the project during all three years. Each institution will gather around 10 local students every year to participate in the innovation challenge and corresponding product hackathons. The participating students will be awarded credits upon their successful completion of the design project.

Each project year one educational institution will invite an industrial partner, i.e. an engineering company, which will provide the innovation challenge and direct the product development. At the end of the project, the industrial partner keeps the right to the ideas and solutions generated by the teams.
