15 + 16 January 2019 — Brussels

Visit website

 

On initiative of the Deputy Prime Minister Alexander De Croo and Minister of Finance and International Development, 115 people from 40 countries came to Brussels to create technology-driven solutions for the most pressing humanitarian challenges.

WHY

Leverage cutting-edge technologies and solutions in the humanitarian context to help create a world without hunger by 2030.

WHAT WE DID

2-day hackathon that started a close collaboration between humanitarian organizations, research institutes, civil society and the private sector. Recruiting a carefully curated group of participants with the support of WFP’s global media outreach  was a critical part of the success of the event.

RESULTS

Several projects created at Humanitarian Hackathon are currently under development in Nairobi with support of WFP’s  Digital Transformation Services.
