For the first time, an unprecedented number of aviation partners are joining forces to bring you the Digital Sky Challenge: a 48-hour innovation sprint aiming to create new digital technologies that will help meet the future needs of the European aviation system in terms of capacity, safety, efficiency, and environmental impact.

We are looking for new digital solutions in these 3 key areas:

WHAT IS THE DIGITAL Sky Challenge?

CODing ON THE AIRFIELD!

The event will take place in a dedicated facility within the secured airfield perimeter of Athens International Airport (AIA). Activities will include dedicated tours for each of the challenges within AIA. 

Partners for this event will challenge participants to solve real and pressing technological and business problems and will provide them with real-life data and materials.


networking with the aviation industry!

The winners' announcement and last evening (4th December) will take place during the SESAR Innovation Days conference and the Airport Chief Executives' Symposium (ACES) at Stavros Niarchos Foundation in Athens.
