The Pan-European Hackathon to Develop Innovative Solutions

#EUvsVirus Hackathon, 24 – 26 April 2020

The European Commission and EU member states have launched a call for participation in a pan-European Hackathon to connect innovators, partners and buyers across Europe to develop innovative solutions to coronavirus.

The #EUvsVirus Hackathon, led by the European Innovation Council, is set for 24, 25 and 26 April. It is structured around the key problems that need short-term solutions in relation to the novel coronavirus.

The challenges to be hacked during #EUvsVirus Hackathon are:

  • health and life
  • business continuity
  • remote working and education
  • social & political cohesion
  • digital finance
  • other challenges.

Feel empowered to get creative!

European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, Mariya Gabriel said:

“This pan-European hackathon is an example of how Europe can come together in times of crisis.  It’s inspiring to witness this show of solidarity by our community of innovators. Our most talented minds will do their best to find solutions to coronavirus and support our citizens. This is European innovation in action.”

All 27 EU Member States are taking part as well as Norway, Israel, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine and the United Kingdom. The winning solutions will be invited to join a European Innovation Council Platform that will facilitate connections with end users (e.g. hospitals) and provide access to investors, foundations and other funding opportunities from across the European Commission.
