Welcome to the TDC, the Territory Development Challenge. This international challenge is aimed to promote the potential of the northern regions of Morocco; Tangier, Tetouan, and Al Hoceima, and develop them into an attractive, dynamic and digitalized territory.
If you have an idea we want to hear it! We’re inviting companies, startups, entrepreneurs, students, professionals, and anyone with an innovative idea from around the world to participate in this online hackathon, submit their ideas before June 30th, 2022, and help innovate the region with a chance of winning the Grand Prize of $15,000!
Let's reinforce the attractiveness of our territory through the development of sustainable and cultural tourism, the establishment of quality health services as well as an improved access to education in rural areas. Reinforcing the development of an essential and important factor for our region; our human capital.
Sustainability is a must when talking about any kind of territorial economic development. Opportunities linked to green energy, circular economies, ports and all things maritime are hugely important throughout our regions, and therefore their development must be accelerated.
The development of autonomous, intelligent solutions and infrastructures, as well as the arrival of Industry 4.0 are among the key assets for implementing logistical and industrial services within the region. These assets are essential for the population and numerous local investors established in the area.
