EU vs. Virus Challenge

Friday 24 April 2020 - Sunday 26 April 2020

Now is your chance to help tackle coronavirus!

On 24, 25 and 26 April, the EUvsVirus Challenge will take place: a pan-European hackathon to connect civil society, innovators, partners and investors across Europe in order to develop innovative solutions for coronavirus-related challenges. The event is hosted by The European Commission, led by the European Innovation Council and in close collaboration with the EU member states. Scientists from all fields and all European countries are called upon to join in the hackathon.

The EUvsVirus is a call to action to all citizens around the world regardless of origin and skill 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!
