Questions and Answers

This Hack 2 Emerge will happen at Terceira Island (Azores) at the Terinov science park. The event lasts for 3 days, but we want you to stay as long as you want.

You can choose between Sata, Ryainair & Tap. They all fly to our Lajes airport. Check our social media for more information, but we higly recommend that you book your trip as soon as possible.

The event will take place at Terinov. Since this is a marathon, there’s no time to sleep. But we will provide everything you need to take good naps. If you want to stay longer, we have hostels / hotels that are partnered with us. Also, we will have food for every event day.

Mainly 2 languages: Portuguese & English, but theres room for every flag. Remember, Portuguese People are “Desenrascados” (ask us the meaning later).

Whatever you want, but if you won the prize it means you have something special on your hands.
