The fourth edition of the Miro In Cube competition has been launched. Focused on solving the problems of the tourism sector, particularly affected by the health crisis, this year the contest will revolve around these reflections: “Which are the key points to reactivating tourism?”, and «Which are the solutions for the practice of a more resilient tourism for a destination?». It consists of a marathon held in the Euroregion formed by Occitania, Catalonia and the Balearic Islands wich will bring together computer programmers and experts in software development for 56 hours, scheduled for next 25th- 27th June.
The event was presented simultaneously in Palma, Barcelona and Perpignan. On behalf of the Government of the Balearic Islands the attenddees were: the General Director of Innovation, Eduardo Zúñiga; the General Director of University Policy and Research, Pep Lluís Pons, and the General Manager of the Bit Foundation, Álvaro Medina.
All participants in the hackathon will complete a first selection stage and will benefit from mentoring sessions, as well as participating in workshops led by experts in tourism, entrepreneurship, technology or research. The Balearic Islands finalists will be provided with the following benefits: free access for six months to the Fundació Bit’s Emprenbit support program for entrepreneurs, strategic advice and mentoring by ParcBit companies (branding, networking, business strategy …), a trip to the final event of 4YFN of the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, as well as a trip including tickets to the South Summit, one of the most relevant events in entrepreneurship and innovation in Spain.
