Urbanization meets Digitalization! These two mega trends are changing our society and will especially disrupt the status quo of transportation in the city. How can we combine current solutions to fulfill the exact mobility need? How can we use synergies between the flow of people and goods? How can we make use of infrastructural changes like 5G to bring mobility to the next level? And how can we create answers to questions that relate to health and mobility in a future city?

Join Hack.Berlin and start the journey with us.

This hackathon is a special one bringing students and experts from economics, politics and sciences together. This gives you the opportunity to challenge yourself and make a real change with your idea, connect with interesting people and grow as a developer. Additionally, the DigitalLife-Team, as well as a team of dedicated Daimler and sciences experts will be there to support you throughout the event. The winner will be invited to join us on the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next February and we will initiate follow-up processes with the best teams. Besides, we’ve also got some other treats ready for you. Wait for it!

What else do you need to know?

We will take care of catering during the event and offer you a sleeping area at the hack location.

Please bring your laptop along with you and feel free to bring your own pillows, sleeping pads or headphones for relaxation and some quiet time. If you want to get a taste of how your journey could look like, check out the blog from the last hackathon












The Einstein Center Digital Future is an inter-university, public-private partnership for research on the digitalization of our society. Its aim is to foster innovative, cutting-edge interdisciplinary research, and to provide outstanding training for talented young scholars. It initiates around 50 new professorships, and brings together universities, non-university research institutes, and industrial enterprises, such as Daimler AG, as well as regional and federal ministries. The scale of this alliance between public entities, sponsors and supporters is unique in Berlin’s history as a center of academic endeavor.










With DigitalLife@Daimler we bundle the company-wide digitalization activities at Daimler and initiate new projects and formats to push digital transformation and a new culture of innovation. With our Global Hackathon Series “DigitalLife Campus” we want to break routine by exploring a new way from the standard company structure allowing innovation to occur in an environment where pretty much everything is possible. Our hackathons bring the most creative and passionate coders together to team up and build groundbreaking prototypes and software solutions. In 2016, with more than 300 participants and five great events on three continents we have already successfully concluded our first cycle of hackathons. In 2017 we started our second cycle of hackathons with the Hack.IAA @ me Convention. Now, it is time for Hack.Berlin!
