The 2019 Hackathon contest will to bring together 35 experts of different backgrounds and cultures in a 3-day marathon of intense solution-oriented work in small groups with the aim of exploring innovative and implementable solutions to this complex problem. In 2019, we hope to move forward with this creative format of intersectoral collaboration which promotes quick, unusual and unexpected solutions. The competing teams will be distributed according to their diverse individual expertise and background and will present their solutions in front of an expert jury. The three finalist teams will then present their pitches to the audience during the Closing Plenary on October 4, 2019. Two prizes, a jury prize and an audience prize, amounting to €25.000 will be awarded to the Hackathon winners.
