European Commission host EUvsVirus Hackathon to develop solutions and overcome coronavirus-related challenges

The European Commission is hosting a pan-European hackathon EUvsVirus on 24-26 April, bringing together international teams in search of solutions to challenges emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The hackathon will aim at gathering 60.000 people in 300 virtual teams, connecting civil society, innovators, partners and buyers across Europe to develop solutions to coronavirus. The event will seek to address approximately 20 imminent coronavirus challenges such as the rapid 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.

The EFC, along with a number of other organisations, is partnering with the European Commission for the hackathon, but the Commission is still reaching out to the philanthropic sector to collaborate on the implementation and outcomes of the hackathon.
