The 4th Dubrovnik Hackathon took place at Hotel Royal Princess in Dubrovnik from April 14-15, organized by DURA Agency, with the support of RIT Croatia and University of Dubrovnik.
Six teams participated in this year’s Hackathon that lasted for 36 hours.
We have the pleasure of announcing that the team that won were RIT Croatia students from our Zagreb campus (Ana Perić, Matko Piškor, Lehady Sani-Agatha, Matej Gadžo, Boris Fjorović), mentored by professor Andrej Šarić. They had a great idea which was a traffic solution for the city of Dubrovnik using machine learning. They were able to prove that implementing that solution is possible. „I am very proud of them, they listened to all the advice they were given and they were able to win their first Hackathon. All teams did very well and I believe that this was an amazing experience for all of them ", said professor Šarić.
Besides the winning team, there were two more teams that comprised of our students from the Dubrovnik campus, and one of those teams was a mix of alumni and current students.
Congratulations to the winning team and to all participants for showcasing their fantastic and innovative ideas!

Another academic year has started and though we are happy to see our students start and continue to achieve success in their academic lives, a lot of things have changed in just one year. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyone's lives globally and made us adapt to what some call the „new normal“.
