Duration of Hackathons is 1-1,5 days and the format is flexible depending on the host organisation.
The format will include the following:
- Inspirational session,
- Training session,
- 1-to-1 meetings between the Challenge Owner and solution provider to get the background information and access to resources (data mostly).
- Hacking the business case – solution provider takes the information and starts to describe/ build/ develop the service or product needed, to prepare a presentation of the demo solution, to create a business model for the solution to scale globally, to draft a pilot action plan together with Challenge Owner (incl. timeframe, budget, agreements on funding, needed funding from the project, KPIs that are going to be achieved).
- Pitching – results from previous steps are presented to the Technological and Business Validation Panel.
All participants shall sign an NDA in the beginning of the Hackathon.
