A technology competition is taking place in Kathmandu next month with an aim to innovate new projects to help the national reconstruction process in wake of the devastating April 25 earthquake and its aftershocks.
IoE Alumni, a network of ex-students of the Institute of Engineering (IOE) of Tribhuvan University, and Janaki Technology Pvt Ltd are jointly organising the HackTheQuake event, that will award three best technologies with Rs 50,000 and help execute them.
Issuing a press statement today, the organisers have called for “innovative ideas and concepts that use locally available resources, are cheap to make and do not require a lot of hi-tech equipment.” The ideas can cover a number of sectors such as temporary housing, toilets, drinking water access, information access, and solar electricity access.
Tech enthusiasts can submit their proposals to help the reconstruction process by June 15 and the best three proposals will be selected by a judging panel and public voting.
DEADLINE : JUNE 15
