Hackathon by Lucknow's AKTU to find inventive solutions for the ongoing oxygen crisis!
Amid heightening oxygen demands across the country, the APJ Abdul Kalam Technical University in Lucknow, is going to organise a hackathon aimed at finding optimal solutions for the LMO crisis. Inviting participation from students, teachers and research fellows, the event will be a race to devise innovative and optimal solutions for reducing wastage, leakage and losses. All interested individuals can apply through the registration portal on the university website by May 10 (5 PM).
A step ahead towards alleviating the oxygen scarcity
The main objective behind this competition is to deliver top-notch sustainable solutions for effective management of problems related to oxygen shortage. While lagging supplies constitute an important reason behind this, the scarcity has become accentuated by the avoidable losses. If these preventable issues are addressed and fixed in time, the scope of meeting the escalating demands becomes enlarged. Taking a cue from similar thoughts, the technical varsity has launched this attempt to solve the difficulties related to oxygen supply.
Assuring a systematic organisation of the event, the university has listed a set of problem statements and the participants will have to attempt to find answers for them. After the ideas are aggregated, the best ones would be hand-picked and the innovator will be rewarded with a token of achievement.
Once the formulated ideas can be turned into real-world solutions, they will be used to help hospitals across Uttar Pradesh in better management of their inventories. Subsequently, the plans also indicate nationwide implementation of projects depending on their success and efficacy in the initial runs.
