How does 2018 EaP Civil Society Hackathon work?

The Hackathon partners activists with IT professionals and designers in teams of 3-4 persons for an intensive 2.5 days of project research, design and creation. Guest speakers and mentors from activism and technology will hold master-classes for all participants and offer guidance on how to improve their products. During the Hackathon each team will develop a prototype of their product. On the last day the teams will pitch their ideas to the entire group, and the best three projects will be invited to apply for Digitalisation for Civil Society Award from the European Union’ EaP Civil Society Facility project to kick-start their initiative.
