NASA is on a mission to foster innovation around challenges affecting us at home and in space. As one of the world's largest international annual hackathons, NASA designed Space Apps for problem solvers like you.
This 48-hour event inspires citizen teamwork for positive change across every skill level and discipline. We invite engineers, coders, makers, artists and storytellers to connect over mission-related challenges.

I am honoured to be part of NASA International Space apps Challenge of NASA open innovation centre.Biomimicry Greece Research and innovation will be host NASA space apps challenge in Thessaloniki & Larisa, Greece of NASAs incubator innovation program. Our plans are to inspire our local communities to find solutions to global challenges and problems on earth and space.People have been looking to nature for answers to problems. Government, academia, industry, citizens, teams of technologists, scientists, designers and entrepreneurs, collaborating together to drive structural changes far beyond the scope of any one organization could achieve on its own.We are excited for this journey over the coming decades. Therefore, we welcome any idea and creative person to join the event.I invite you all to this open innovation process through collective intelligence” and “the wisdom of crowds” in order to offer productive models for humanity challenges in space and earth.
The Space Apps universe produced 1,287 projects this year . Congratulations to our star solvers on their out-of-this-world work!
