Digital Education Hack

WHAT IS DIGIEDUHACK?


DigiEduHack is an opportunity for anyone in the world to solve pending digital education issues.

 
Coders and non-coders, beginners and experienced educators, citizens from anywhere in the world: you can make change happen in digital education. We are looking for ideas and solutions to solve digital education challenges, in Europe and beyond. 




HOW DOES IT WORK? 

DigiEduHack is free, inclusive, sustainable and open to all: choose an open challenge, register on digieduhack.com and take part online or in-person on the 9-10 November 2021. After the event, a challenge winner is designated by each challenge-owner. All the challenge-winning solutions are then assessed by the DigiEduHack steering group, which designate 10 to 12 finalists. The finalists are put up for a public vote. The 3 finalists with the most votes become the DigiEduHack 2021 Global Award winners. 




15 000€ IN GLOBAL AWARD WINNING PRIZES, AND MORE!

The three DigiEduHack 2021 Global Award winning teams will each get 5000€ and their members will be nominated DigiEduHack Global Ambassadors for a year. The three DigiEduHack 2021 Global Award winning teams will receive their awards and will be invited to pitch their solution to Mariya Gabriel, the European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, during a high-level Awarding ceremony in 2022. 

All DigiEduHack 2021 participants will get a blockchain-based certificate that can be integrated into a LinkedIn profile. And there's more: some of our challenges have their own, additional rewards and prizes. Check the list and join!
