Discover #SHU2018

The first Social Hackathon in Umbria
@ Foligno
5-8 July

4 days of events among innovation and digital fun

Digital competence, sense of initiative and entrepreneurship represent some of the most required competences by the labour market and, therefore, their development is being strongly promoted by the European Union for citizens of all ages and origin. In 2018, already at its third edition, the Social Hackathon Umbria aims at answering to this priority by offering training paths of different format and duration, for digital curious or aspiring hackers, which will take place starting from May 2018 and ending with a digital marathon next 5-8 July in Foligno, Italy.
Contemporarly to the training activities, we are launching a call for ideas on three thematic challenges: B-KIDS, B-YOUTHS e B-WORK. For each challenge, we will select the two most relevant ideas to be developed by teams of maximum 6 participants under the guidance of an expert team manager. During the 48 hours Hackathon, teams will choose if producing a pitch, a prototype or a product to be presented in front of an international jury for the assignment of a digital prize of the commercial value of 100 €
