At the Sustainable Blockchain Hackathon, co-organised by Ing. Alin Kalam, Informatics students Peter Seyfang and Markus Schüttengruber won two awards.

As one of the joint winners among the 11 teams, the IMC students’ reward for their hard work was a partnership with Wien Energie. Students Peter Seyfang and Markus Schüttengruber developed a platform for solar energy projects. Based on transparency and stakeholder involvement, the platform puts people who have roof space available for solar energy generation in contact with installation and operating companies as well as investors. The pair picked up two prizes for their innovative project: the Roketo Award for the best fintech initiative and the Solar-preneur Award. Congratulations to them both!
