Press Release: EV Hackathon: Future EV Mobility
Creative Contest for Sustainability #EV4Sustain
in celebration of the 160th anniversary of the establishment
of diplomatic relations between Thailand and Germany #160TG
To commemorate this auspicious occasion, #160TG the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Thailand together with King Mongkut’s University of Technology North Bangkok #KMUTNB, and the Embassy of Germany in Thailand are organizing “Future EV Mobility Creative Contest for Sustainability” or the “EV Hackathon for Sustainability” #EV4Sustain from June to August 2022. The contest aims to promote exchanges of creative ideas and knowledge of electric vehicles amongst the future generation.
The “EV Hackathon for Sustainability” is open to higher education students between 18-35 years old to participate in online workshops and submit their creative presentations. Eight selected teams of three students will then compete in the final round of 24-hour EV Hackathon during 27-28 August 2022 at KMUTNB to win cash prizes of 250,000 baht in total.
Not only is the competition in line with the theme of the 160th anniversary between Thailand and Germany – “Partners for Sustainable Growth,” Thailand can also benefit from Germany’s expertise in the electric vehicle industry in transforming Thailand into a low-carbon society under the 30/30 policy with 30% of total production to be EVs by 2030. The “EV Hackathon for Sustainability” also resonates with Thailand’s Bio-Circular-Green Economy policy and Germany’s Energy Transition and Climate Change policy.
The competition is made possible by support from concerned Thai agencies and leading private sectors in the field of electric vehicles such as the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand, King Mongkut’s University of Technology North Bangkok Alumni Association under the Patronage of His Majesty the King, BMW (Thailand) Co., Ltd. and Mercedes Benz (Thailand) Ltd.
