DigiEduHack is an EU initiative that aims to foster grassroots innovation, collaboration and creativity and to drive positive change in digital education.

How does it work?

DigiEduHack is a series of 24-hour grassroots local hackathons taking place over a period of eight days, from 6 to 13 November. Whether in Europe or elsewhere around the globe, participants come together to create solutions to diverse digital education-related challenges.

DigiEduHack started in 2019, as part of the first Digital Education Action Plan of the European Commission. For its first three editions, it gathered more than 6,700 participants from Europe and beyond. The initiative continues under the Digital Education Action Plan 2021-2027, with a long-term goal to support grassroots innovation and contribute to the objectives of the European Digital Education Hub.
