We return with the fifth edition of the EaP Civil Society Hackathons, and invite civic tech enthusiasts from the EaP countries to register for our 2023 EU-EaP Civic Tech Acceleration Hackathon to boost their civic tech solutions from prototypes to products!
The 2023 Hackathon will be held online on 12 May – 10 June 2023. It will be focused on enhancing existing prototypes of digital solutions designed by civic tech teams from the six Eastern Partnership countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine. In the best traditions of start-up accelerators, 15 teams of civic tech projects will work with mentors and IT professionals & graphic designers from EaP and EU to improve their prototypes and compete for the 2023 Civil Society Digitalisation Award, a special facility to support the full-fledged development and launch of one (or more) civic tech solution proposed by the 2023 Hackathon participants. The expected average amount of support per winner is EUR 10,000; up to EUR 12,000 may be awarded on an exceptional basis.
We welcome applications for the 2023 EU-EaP Civic Tech Acceleration Hackathon from:
- Teams with an existing prototype of a civic tech solution and a minimum set of technical skills to work on its enhancement from the EaP counties, and
- Technical experts – IT professionals and graphic designers – from the EaP and the EU counties interested in helping the Hackathon teams with their prototypes.
