Hacking the Vatican


The Vatican is going to open its doors to the world of disruptive innovation next month.

The religious capital is joining the hackathon age with VHacks, which will see over 100 students – representing international universities – work together for 36 hours to identify how technologies can be better employed to tackle issues of social inclusion, and as a means to improve the lives of migrants and refugees. The event also aims to encourage cooperation between young people from ‘diverse academic, ethnic and religious backgrounds’.

VHacks takes place in the Vatican City in Rome on the weekend of 8 to 11 March. Follow the big ideas generated via hashtag
