Are you up for a challenge? Are you ready to put your problem-solving skills to the test? Register now to take part in the 24-Hour Hackathon which will take place on the 24th and 25th February. Participating in this event will give you the opportunity to continue the journey as a Groundbreaker, receiving 5000 euro in grants to develop your ideas! What's more? Groundbreakers will be giving out 25,000 euro in awards for the best ideas pitched in an event in November 2023.
Groundbreakers is a programme built to support young innovators who will be 18-25 years in 2023 to respond to challenges by developing an idea that reflects their voice and the space they wish to claim in society. Through a combination of activities and funding mechanisms, including a hackathon, and mentoring sessions, young innovators will be encouraged and given the resources to research, explore, cultivate ideas and skills to develop a concept through a process-based journey that will manifest itself in the presentation of a final pitch responding to an initial challenge.
