Climate Hackathon 2022

Dear students!

On the third weekend of December (December 17-18, 2022), the Student Gaidar project ecosystem team is holding a hackathon, for which our partner companies will provide cases related to the adaptation of Russian business to the transition to new economic models: restructuring of supply chains, certification and ratings of companies).

Please join, on an individual basis, you can form a team as with members of your language or academic group - or with any IBS students. And although much is still unclear, the hackathon team is working, and everything should work out for us.

Your benefits are courses in sustainable development, scientific foundations of medicine, climate science, for some of you - repeated experience of participating in the Student Gaidar conference.

And although everything happens spontaneously, albeit on a very short notice, in very difficult conditions of significant and rapid changes in the structure of the economy and the place of business in it, but right now it is important to learn how to solve real cases and simulate the ongoing processes of transition to new standards. Support the honor of IBS!
