A pan-European hackathon this month will focus on developing solutions to real-life challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Devised by the European Commission – and the member states – it will bring together pioneers and civil society over three days dedicated to generating ideas that can fight the devastating impact of the virus.

Registration to join up as a problem-solver, mentor, or partner closes in just over four days time. The hackathon itself takes place on 24, 25 and 26 April. Go here for details.
