Migros UP Hackathon

Migros UP Hackathon

Today is the time to take action for nature. Migros Ticaret AS invites young talents to talk about the future.

One of the most important barriers to modern agricultural practices is to adapt farmers to technology. While technology is developing, including agriculture, adaption to use new generation technologies limits progress in this area. Migros Ticaret AS try to find young talents that promise solutions to this problem. They are ready to listen to any solution that will facilitate sustainable agricultural practices and farmers' adaptation to technology. Together with global partners FAO and EBRD, you are welcome innovative ideas from all over the world.

Migros Ticaret AS main focus is “Engage farmers in making use of technology to support sustainable farming.” If you have any ideas, you can apply to our call.

The 3 finalists will be hosted in Turkey and have the opportunity to visit the agricultural lands in Turkey and meet the local farmers, entrepreneurs and professionals. Share your opinion now to take advantage of this unique experience and be a part of a Hackathon that will have a global impact.

The challenge includes these questions:
