The EUvsVirus Hackathon is a European Commission initiative that is open to EVERYONE AROUND THE WORLD on April 24-26.

Together with the European society, the European Commission is looking for solutions to challenges related to the Corona virus. Innovators from all industries as well as socially committed citizens are invited to take part in the the first pan-European hackathon between April 24th and 26th.
Under #EUvsVirus, the hackathon offers a common organizational and technical framework in which the participants can get involved online and develop working prototypes and solutions for technically, politically, and socially relevant issues with regard to the Corona crisis. It aims at commonly developing innovative solutions e.g. high tech, low tech, hardware, software, using biotech, digital tech, societal science and other innovation domains.

Judging Criteria

  • 40% Impact Potential
    What is the impact to society if the idea is implemented at scale? Does this offer something that hasn't been solved already? If it has been solved, does this offer something different? Can it be scaled to meet thousands or even millions of people?
  • 20% Technical Complexity & Novelty
    Technical complexity does not necessarily mean code. This could be anything, hardware designs, specialised test kits or even a complex but clear business plan. Is this an innovative solution?
  • 20% Prototype Completion
    Is there a ready technical prototype of the solution? If yes, does it work well? Does the prototype present well the idea of the solution? How fast can the prototype be turned into a ready to use product?
  • 20% Business Plan
    It is essential to consider the feasibility, economic and societal value, market knowledge and sustainability of the solution. What resources are needed to implement the solution?
