Revolutionizing handling of recycled materials in construction

May 7 @ 13:00 - 15:00

Urban Tech Helsinki Challenge 2024 - Ultrahack

The construction industry faces significant challenges in managing recycled materials effectively and efficiently. Traditional practices often lead to slow, manual processes, inconsistent data management, and a lack of transparency throughout the material life cycle. As the industry seeks to embrace circular economy principles, there is a pressing need for innovative solutions that streamline material handling, optimise logistics, and promote resource efficiency.

The handling of recycled materials in construction represents a critical frontier in the transition towards a circular economy. These processes are costly and slow today, thus making them financially unsustainable for companies within the industry. By harnessing the power of technology, data analytics, and collaboration, you have the opportunity to drive meaningful change and innovation in the construction industry.

The Urban Tech Helsinki Challenge consists of a series of online workshops during April and May 2024, followed by a hybrid pitching event to conclude the competition.
