We are enabled thanks to the work and framework of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation. With local other organizations, parallel Hackathons are organized in Brussels, Athens and Prague

There is no age limit as long as the students are enrolled actively in University. Requirements of participation is to have a team of minimum two people and maximum four. Participants need to be fluent in English.

 Participants will compete in a public hearing for a price and will get the opportunity to network with experts on the topic of Innovation and Fake news. This is your opportunity to come forward and test your case solving skills using Innovation and new technologies to improve the quality of our democracies.
