European Commission supports the Global Hack, a global tech movement to combat the coronavirus

The European Commission is supporting the Global Hack, an online hackathon, organised by Accelerate Estonia, Garage48, Guaana with the support of Devpost. The Hackathon is designed to share and rapidly develop ideas for the urgently needed solutions in the current COVID-19 pandemic.

The Global Hack aims to partner people from around the world with one another to exchange ideas, know-how and best practices to come up with creative and nimble solutions.

The European Commission will provide up to €75 000 to the Global Hack for prize money to the winning teams. The Commission will also provide input to the government related challenges to be hacked in the area of start-ups, small businesses and eHealth as well as coaching in bringing viable solutions where they are needed.
