On September 25th/26th, over 70 participants came together for this years MünsterHack, a Hackathon in and for Münster. This year, as every other event around, the Hackathon was done virtually. On Saturday evening, 11 teams presented their results "live" in front of the jury and in a live stream on Youtube. Armin and Katrin were involved in the MünsterHack and very much enjoyed the whole event. It successfully proved that virtual Hackathons are possible.
This year's Annual Workshop was completely different to the face-to-face meetings we had in the last years at one of the associated partner universities. Due to Covid-19 we decided to not skip the workshop but rather go for a virtual alternative. With over 90 participants the ERCIS Annual Workshop was bigger than ever before and although we could only see each other on the screen, it was like a big family reunion. New partners had the chance to introduce themselves to the network and the competence centers gave an update about their interdisciplinary work.
