How can we make students more equipped for their future careers? What can we do to give them that little bit extra to develop into successful, productive and happy employees? How can we improve current employability initiatives in Limburg province? And upgrade the overall working environment?
Join the EmployMaas Hackathon, a tribute to Maastricht and Limburg, the place that has become a second home for some of us.
Together, we want to solve regional issues related to employability and put innovative ideas into practice. Our goal is to create more job opportunities and more reasons to stay in this amazing place. We’re inviting you to work on the challenges facing businesses and government in the region.
At the same time, this hackathon provides real educational value to the participants: they’ll apply their knowledge and expertise to real-world cases, along the lines of Maastricht University’s famed Problem-Based Learning approach. And the best part of it is that you can make a real contribution to the region as the winning solutions will be implemented.
Gemeente Maastricht - the challenge focuses on the improvement of current existing employability initiatives
Mediaan - the focus of this challenge is matching resources with planning
Provincie Limburg - the challenge will focus on a career development infrastructure that is intended to be established in Limburg as a joint initiative.
