The EU has launched a call for participation in a pan-European Hackathon to connect innovators, partners and buyers across Europe to develop innovative solutions to coronavirus. The Hackathon, led by the European Innovation Council, will take place on 24, 25 and 26 April and is structured around categories of problems that need short-term solutions in relation to coronavirus health and life, business continuity, remote working and education, social & political cohesion, digital finance and an open category for other challenges.

The TIB is a partner of the Hackathon. Prof. Dr. Sören Auer and his team at the Joint Lab of L3S and TIB are present as mentors and partners and are looking for interested students/partners to work together on topics related to the Open Research Knowledge Graph (ORKG).

The winning solutions will be invited to join a European Innovation Council Platform that will facilitate connections with end users (e.g. hospitals) and provide access to investors, foundations and other funding opportunities.
