More about the Hackathon

The goal of this 48h nonprofit online hackathon is to develop open-source prototypes, which will contribute to solving the most pressing challenges in the current COVID-19 crisis. 

We want to build on existing solutions and technologies to prevent duplications, and we want to enable a sustainable impact after the hackathon to take projects to the next level and implement them for our daily life and work.  

This hackathon is inspired by Estonia and the community of Garage48 “HACK THE CRISIS”, organised by volunteers from the Estonian government, corporates & startup community.
