The Hackathon Reunion Event was held on 26 January, 2017 at the Merck Innovation Center in Darmstadt, Germany. The event began with an enthralling speech on “Six Facts on Innovation” by Prof Rasa Karapandza, Chair of Finance from EBS Business School. The winning teams presented their ideas to a wide audience consisting of our employees. The discussion following the presentation were very exciting. As a result 3 project ideas that emerged from the 24 hour Hackathon have now been followed up in different departments at Merck and our internal employees are working with the students to develop it further.
