India : NITI Aayog Presses The Gas Pedal To Find Mobility Solutions For India With MoveHack

MoveHack aims to bring innovative, dynamic, and scalable solutions for problems relating to mobility in India

NITI Aayog is looking for solutions based on 10 themes — multimodal commuter mobility in cities, multimodal freight handling and transportation, road safety, future of mobility, etc

The hackathon has seen more than 20,000 registrations from about 7,000 teams

In a bid to fast-track innovation for the future of mobility in India, the government think tank NITI Aayog has launched MoveHack, a global mobility hackathon. The hackathon will provide a platform for driven individuals and teams to collaborate and produce ideas, solutions, and prototypes to some of the most pressing issues in urban mobility in the country today.

The global mobility hackathon is an integral part of the ‘MOVE: Global Mobility Summit’, being organised by NITI Aayog in collaboration with various ministries and industry partners in New Delhi on September 7-8, 2018.

MoveHack, which invites talented hacks to develop innovative, dynamic, and scalable solutions for problems relating to mobility in India, has taken a two-pronged approach to the hackathon:

  • Just Code It: A campaign aimed at deriving solutions through innovations in technology, product, software, and data analysis
  • Just Solve It: A campaign looking for innovative business ideas or sustainable solutions to transform the mobility infrastructure of India through technology

NITI Aayog is looking for solutions across 10 themes — multimodal commuter mobility in cities, multimodal freight handling and transportation, road safety, the future of mobility, and more. The organisers have developed the themes in collaboration with relevant ministries and departments of the government after holding a multi-day workshop to define and refine the themes so they are relevant to India’s current mobility situation.
