Nurturing young talent: Look back to the Digital Sky Challenge (Webinar)

This webinar gave attendees another chance to hear from the winners of the Digital Sky Challenge, jointly organised by ACI EUROPE, SESAR Joint Undertaking and Athens International Airport on 2-4 December 2019 in Athens.

During the hackathon, for the first time ever, the entire European aviation industry – airports, airlines, aviation organisations and aviation-related business partners - joined forces to make an extensive dataset available to a group of young passionate coders. The aim? Create new digital solutions for aviation, particularly focused on streamlining the passenger experience, improving the environmental performance of Europe’s airspace and enhancing safety.

The event brought together 52 young tech-talents from 11 European countries competing in 12 teams to create breakthrough prototype solutions to address 3 different challenges: 1. Streamlining the passenger experience, 2. Improving the Environment, 3. Enhancing safety – with the support of several key partners (1). 3 winners were selected:

Innov’ATM, winners of the Passenger Experience challenge

Innov’ATM was the winner of the Passenger Experience challenge. The team came up with an innovative app, PaxKeeper, to reduce the stress of travelling while improving airline punctuality. The app helps to track passengers with their consent, so that airlines and all involved stakeholders know where they are. It also offers clear benefits, which are marketable and achievable.

Eco-Travelers by Sopra Steria, winners of the Environment challenge

Eco-Travelers by Sopra Steria won the Environment challenge. The team developed a tool that allows passengers to select the best and most green mobility option, integrating multiple modes of transport. The tool took into account existing systems and carbon offsetting schemes.

JBM, winners of the Safety challenge

JBM won the Safety challenge by successfully developing from scratch a safety net capable of analysing distances between aircraft in order to alert and thus avert potential incidents.
