The International SpaceAppsChallenge is an international mass collaboration focused on Earth and Space. It takes place over 30 hours in cities around the world. The event embraces collaborative problem solving with a goal of producing relevant open-source solutions to address global needs applicable to both life on earth and life in space.

We are hosted by the Motionlab in Berlin, one of the biggest coworking Makerspaces in the world. It contains established and developing technologies for prototyping and manufacturing. You will find  a space where you can experiment free and find out if your ideas work in real life.
