CYBATHLON Challenges


The third CYBATHLON Challenges will take place on 2 February 2024.

Promoting Cooperation from the very Beginning

The CYBATHLON Challenges offer development teams the opportunity to involve people with disabilities in their development process from the very beginning and to test their assistance systems in a competitive situation. The online competitions are expected to take place twice a year in several or all CYBATHLON disciplines until CYBATHLON 2024. The competition management will provide the teams with a task from the Races and Rules of the CYBATHLON 2024, which they will set up at home in order to carry out the competition.
