In order to strengthen the role of civil society in reforms and democratic changes in the EaP region through the development of relevant ICT tools, the European Union has established the Civil Society Digitalisation Award. The Award seeks to support the full-fledge development of the best ICT tool designed by participants of Eastern Partnership Civil Society Hackathons organised by the Project.
Each year one hackathon team receives the Civil Society Digitalisation Award and financial support to further develop, test and launch their ICT tool prototyped during the hackathons.
