Between the 24th and the 26th of April 2020 the European Commission will hold an EU vs Virus Hackathon

Between the 24th and the 26th of April 2020, an “EU vs Virus” Hackathon will be held by the European Commission.

To complement hackathons taking place at global and member state level, the European Commission - in close collaboration with EU member states – will host a pan-European hackathon to connect civil society, innovators, partners and buyers across Europe to develop innovative solutions to coronavirus.

The #EUvsVirus Hackathon will address approximately 20 imminent coronavirus challenges (e.g. fast production of equipment, scaling up production capabilities, knowledge and solutions transfer from one country to another), to be quickly developed and deployed across the EU Single Market.
