What is a MAKEATHON?
A “MAKEATHON” is an innovative educational event in which several teams (also from different fields of studies) create and develop technological prototypes as well as innovative solutions during a short period of time. The challenges or problems could be provided whether by the sponsoring companies or within the participating teams.
The name “MAKEATHON” comes from the combination to “MAKE” and “MARATHON”. It is a special live-event where participants spend several days creating, hacking, developing, designing, and pitching a software or hardware project they have built from scratch.

The main goal of Smart Green Tunisia
The main goal of the MAKEATHON is to join forces and be a part of a strategic plan by creating a special international network and an open space for creativity and innovation. The SMART GREEN TUNISIA Team believes that young innovative students have the determination and required skills to support the objective of Tunisia’s industrial growth.
Therefore a “SMART GREEN TUNISIA MAKEATHON” could play an important role where Tunisian as well as international companies can meet with local and international students.
