Copernicus invites to join the international organizing team of Digital Education Hackathon

Copernicus invites to join the organizing team of the Digital Education Hackathon – DigiEduHack. It will take place on the 3rd of October, as a 24-hour contest with a series of local events which will solve challenges education faces in the digital age.

The DigiEduHack is the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) initiative, under Commissions’ Digital Education Action Plan, led by the EIT Climate KIC and coordinated by Aalto University, Finland. The Hackathon aims to bring together 20,000 participants from more than 50 teams from Europe and beyond to solve educational challenges in the digital age.

Participation in Hackathon is open for educational institutions (higher education institutions, research institutes, schools), NGOs, private sector, start-ups and other organisations working in the education field.

Participating teams are asked to host and organise local events where, through participative and innovative methods, different educational stakeholders (teachers, students, but also partners, stakeholders from the community, etc.) will discuss specific challenges related to the three priorities of the Digital Education Action Plan:

  • Making better use of digital technology for teaching and learning
  • Developing digital competences and skills
  • Improving education through better data analysis and foresight

The best teams coming up with solutions which are high quality, scalable and replicable will be awarded 5,000 euros to start implementing their ideas.
