African-European Online Hackathon Program
The EU is please to announce a cross-continental hackathon that was launched on the 20th of October 2020.
Under the aegis of the #TeamEuropeInitiative, Estonia and the African Union, in cooperation with Finland, Ireland, Luxembourg and Poland, with the implementing partners Garage48 and Smart Africa are organising an online cross-continental hackathon “EU-Africa The Post Crisis Journey”, from 10-13 December 2020.
This is an African-European online hackathon program to find innovative solutions to socio-economic problems that have been further escalated by the outburst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We aim to engage 10,000 passionate tech-savvy and socially conscious problem solvers, 300 mentors and 500 community organizations across Africa and Europe. Winning teams will get their hands on a 100,000 Euro prize fund (and growing!), develop their prototypes further in the follow-up program of the hackathon and implement their world-changing ideas in real life.
The program is put together in collaboration with Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs / Välisministeerium, African Union and in cooperation with Irish Aid, Ministère des Affaires étrangères et européennes, Luxembourg, Polish Aid, Ulkoministeriö – utrikesministeriet with the implementing partners Garage48 and Smart Africa, Home of Transform Africa Summit.
In line with the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Africa-Europe Digital Economy Partnership Report, a number of pressing challenges have been identified and shaped the structure of this program.
