Global - Exciting E-Mobility





Co-create the future of EV charging infrastructure!

These days, road transport is one of the largest sources of CO2emissions. To meet the 2050 Paris climate commitments, transport has to be decarbonised. This means that sales of cars with internal combustion engines must cease entirely by 2035. Transition to new modes of transport requires a reliable charging infrastructure. Join hackathon to learn about EV drivers behaviour, their needs, expectation and the main challenges regarding EV charging infrastructure. Tap into data and contribute to building digital solutions. CodEV!

1. Preliminary statement


Welcome to DigiEduHack. This set of rules is a body of principles governing DigiEduHack as a whole.
Each DigiEduHack challenge might have additional and/or specific rules.


DigiEduHack is a hackathon that encourages collaboration, co-creation and real-life change. Even if in the end three teams will be crowned as global winners and will get 5000€ each, any solution uploaded on can potentially have an impact on digital education. This reflects the spirit of DigiEduHack: you take part in this hackathon because you and your team members want to take action and contribute to solving an actual challenge.


DigiEduHack is free, accessible, inclusive and sustainable. Please keep in mind these values when entering and taking part in a DigiEduHack challenge. Participants are expected to behave according to these values.

Do not shame, mock, attack, despise or hurt other participants.
Do support other teams, respect the differences, encourage, help and include others.

Be positive and remember to have fun: DigiEduHack is fist and foremost a great experience where you are going to meet fantastic people, get new cool skills, grow your network.


Last but not least: in case of doubt, please contact either the owner of the challenge or the DigiEduHack central team

2. Rules


Prior to joining Digieduhack, you as a participant should pick a challenge. Most of the challenges have an open recruitment; some challenges have a conditional recruitment (be a student part of the challenge owner's institution for example). You can see the status of a challenge by checking its label on the "2020 events" page and on the "2020 challenges" page.


As a participant, you can only join/take part in one DigiEduHack challenge in 2020. You can join alone, or take part as a team. If you tale pat as a team, each team members should sign up for the challenge individually. The size of the teams is decided by each challenge owner. This size may vary from one challenge to another. The composition of a team is decided by the local challenge owners. Please refer to the documentation specific to the challenge you wish to join. In case of doubt, please contact the challenge owner.


As a participant you are expected to take part in all/most of the activities organised by the challenge owner on the 12-13 November 2020. Challenge owners can decide to make some or all activities mandatory, either before, during or after their DigiEduHack event. Please refer to the planning of the challenge you joined for further info.


Your solution should be co-created and finalised during the DigiEduHack event you're taking part in. It's allowed to join with draft ideas, frameworks, ideas and concepts. It's not allowed to join with a ready-made, ready-to-be-rolled-out solution. You can get inspiration from existing solution but plagiarism, copy and/or any other form of treachery or deception are totally forbidden. You can use open source resources if you clearly attribute the sampled part(s) to their original creator(s) and if the sampled part(s) is a minor component of your solution.


DigiEduHack is a multilevel hackathon where each challenge owner chooses one winning solution and might choose one or several runner-ups. Each challenge owner has their own judging grid to assess submitted solutions: please contact your challenge owner for more details. All the winning solutions (NOT the runner-ups) enter the global competition where the DigiEduHack steering group chooses 10 to 12 finalists based on the criteria available here. These 10 to 12 finalist solutions are uploaded on the United Nations' Unite Ideas platform to be submitted to a public vote. The three solutions that gather the most votes are declared global winners and their teams are awarded 5000€ each.


At the end of the event you are taking part in, follow and respect your challenge owner's instructions on when to stop working on your solution and on where, how and when your solution will be assessed: pay especially attention to mandatory pitching/demo sessions and upload requirements. You had no time to finish? No worries: notify it during your pitch/demo/upload in the description of your project.  All the solutions created during DigiEduHack 2020 should be uploaded on Solutions uploaded to are made public under the DigiEduHack intellectual property guidelines.


Only ONE team member should upload the team's solution on, and only ONE solution per team should be uploaded. A team can only upload a solution for a challenge they are registered for and actually took part in. Before starting the upload process, please check the solution upload guidelines. To upload your solution login, go to "upload your solution" and follow the steps.


Participants or teams can be disqualified and excluded from DigiEdUhack for breaking one of the aforementioned rules/preliminary statements. If a single participant in a team breaks a rule, the participant will be excluded from their team and from DigiEduHack. The rest of the team can keep taking part in DigiEduHack. If a team as a whole breaks a rule, they will be excluded from DigiEduHack. Each challenge owner decides in full discretion on exclusions for their own event. The DigiEduHack central team decides in full discretion on exclusions for the global competition. Exclusions are definitive. Solutions that break the rules described in 2.4 will be disqualified. If a winning solution is disqualified, the challenge owner will organise a second deliberation and annouce a new winner. If a finalist solution or a global winning solution is disqualified, the Steering group as a whole or in a smaller quorum will assess a new finalist solution and a new public vote will take place.


Hackathon is taking place on-line using Zoom platform. Please download Zoom in advance for PC. We recommend joining meetings with video. Some of the functionality is limited to smartphones/tablets. Check details here

Our challenge, your solutions
Global online hackathon: codEV charging infrastructure
Join DigiEduHack hackaton to connect with other professionals, innovators and entrepreneurs to co-create the future of sustainable mobility. Learn about the main challenges regarding the EV charging infrastructure and contribute to building digital solutions: codEV.
Keep Charge & May the Power be with You

A sustainable but reliable future EV global system needs the synchronization of electricity demand and supply while introducing renewable resources (e.g. solar cells) to the energy market. In order to do so, the needs and expectations of EV drivers must be considered on a business level.

AI platform for charging infrastructe investments decisions

We build a proprietary AI solution for corporations and cities to identify the best location, type and time of installation for their new charging stations. Our platform brings together financiers, installers, operators and the end customers to facilitate the adoption of EV in scale.

Incentivizing drivers to charge at less busy times

We analyzed data from charging stations managed by Go-To U app and we identified demand patterns and peaks. To increase the occupancy of charging stations we need to optimize charging sessions so that they are evenly spread out across time intervals we developed an innovative reward system.
