Hack the Crisis Kosovo with various solutions to fight COVID-19

The situation created by the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic requires rapid mobilization, thus, Innovation Centre Kosovo (ICK), for the first time organized the online hackathon “Hack the Crisis Kosovo” with the purpose of creating new solutions for individuals, communities and businesses struggling with the problems caused by the outbreak of the virus.

With more than 400 participants registered for the hackathon HACK THE CRISIS Kosovo, 70 teams were formed, which designed digital products in six different categories, such as: social and psychological status, education, economics and the accessibility of businesses, and governance in times of pandemics.

During the hackathon, the teams were assisted by different mentors with expertise in various disciplines. While the winning teams were rewarded with a prize pool of 10,000 euros and scholarships, whereas in the coming days, Innovation Center Kosovo will help find partners and additional help to implement some of the ideas from the competition.
