THE Brunei Economic Development Board (BEDB) will launch the first Brunei “Hackathon” tomorrow, with the aim of developing solutions to water-related problems.

According to a BEDB statement, the Brunei Hackathon will provide a platform for technical and commercial professionals to develop solutions for water-related problems faced by the country and the public in their everyday lives.

The participants will work on designs and prototypes to identify the problems, and can work towards patenting their design with BEBD.

“Promoting and developing new ideas and start-ups is a high priority,” said BEDB.

BEBD aimed to encourage talented individuals to start their own companies and develop and market their products locally. The “Hackathon” will be held at the Knowledge Hub, Anggerek Desa.
