#EUvsVirus – Pan-European hackathon
16 of April, 2020
The European Commission is organising a pan European Hackathon aiming at developing innovative solutions for coronavirus-related challenges. The event will take place from the 24th to the 26th April 2020 and is open to the European community of innovators, start-ups, makers, retailers, public and private buyers, end users etc. #EUvsVirus hackathon is co-organised by the European Commission with a number of Member States.
The Hackathon is structured around 6 categories of problems that need short-term solutions in relation to coronavirus health and life, business continuity, remote working and education, social & political cohesion, digital finance and an open category for other challenges. Each of these 6 categories will cover 6 challenges.
Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellows could participate as members of hackathon teams, as well as mentors for some of these teams (registrations are already open!).
