High above the rooftops of Graz, in the rooms of TU Graz's Rooftop Mensa, the organisation team has set up its Mission Control Center for this year's TU Austria Innovation Marathon. It's the place, where normally hundreds of students, researchers and lecturers from TU Graz have lunch, drink coffee, chill out, enjoy the view and exchange ideas.
Ideas are also exchanged here during these hours, with students from all over the world via Zoom. The virtual event works outstandingly well, which you can see for yourself on facebook.com/innovation.marathon.
The TU Austria Innovation Marathon is always special, but this year even more. Not only are we all under the spell of a worldide pandemic, but the students also face the challenge of a virtual marathon by forming teams across the world: from Cairo to La Paz, from Munich to Nairobi, from Lisbon to Graz, without knowing each other personally.
Punctually at high noon project leader Mario Fallast has rang the gong for this year's TU Austria Innovation Marathon!
We give you a glimpse behind the scenes! Experience and see the students and the whole TU Austria Innovation Marathon Team in action on facebook.com/innovations.marathon.
