EUvsVirus is a pan-European Hackathon organized by the European Commission
The European Commission, led by the European Innovation Council and in close collaboration with the EU member states, will host a pan-European hackathon to connect civil society, innovators, partners, and investors across Europe to develop innovative solutions for coronavirus-related challenges.
euvsvirus.org is a Europe-wide online hackathon organized by the most plugged-in and nationally connected actors from all over Europe. It builds upon already conducted national hackathons to enable the rapid execution of brilliant solutions.
The #EUvsVirus is a call to action to each and everyone to participate in the fight against COVID-19: Demonstrate unity and share your skills for the common good across borders and generations! Let’s digitally open EU-borders during this collective challenge!
The European Commission, in close collaboration with all member States and the participating H2020 associated countries, will provide follow up to the best projects coming from the #EUvsVirus hackathon through the new European Innovation Council (EIC) COVID platform. Foundations, investors, health providers (e.g. hospitals) will also be part of the EIC COVID platform.
Drive a meaningful project and help your family, friends, neighbors, and all EU countries respond to the COVID-19 crisis.
Be part of the solution and get recognized all across the European Commission, the European Parliament, and all partner networks.
