A Hackathon and Ideathon for Sustainable Africa
The Kampala INSPIRE hackathon is organised in the frame of the IST Africa 2020 Conference, which is supported by the European Commission (EC) and the African Union Commission (AUC).
The hackathon addresses some of the key topics identified by the IST-Africa conference, such as agriculture, environmental sustainability, collaborative open innovation and ICT-enabled entrepreneurship, and it is a contribution to joint efforts to solve these challenges.
The hackathon starts in March 2020 by creating hackathon teams addressing predefined challenges. The hackathon will then run remotely until an onsite hackathon at the University of Makerere, Kampala 4 – 5 May 2020. The final phase is on 8 May 2020 in Kampala where the hackathon results will be presented within a workshop at IST Africa.
