COCUS at Hackacity Porto: Innovative Social Support

Hackacity, now in its sixth edition in Porto, is a unique event that aims to explore the potential of open city data to develop solutions with a direct impact on the community. Evolving since 2016, Hackacity not only challenges participants technically but also encourages them to consider the practical implications of their innovations on society.

COCUS, represented by the ByteBridgesPorto team, stood out by presenting a solution focused on significantly improving the quality of life for individuals commuting in Porto, all at an exceptionally low cost.
