iKorça Hackathon – Final

This Hackathon organized in Korça from the Municipality of the city, with the support of EU for Innovation project and in collaboration with ICTSlab and Crazy town. About 40 students, university researchers, academy staff members, Start-ups and other talents got together during 11-13 December virtually as well as physically for the teams coming from the city of Korça.

The event was held in the New Library of Korça, which will soon turn in Korça ICT Hub. During the Hackathon a lot of services, concepts, applications, demo and research were presented.

Each team could choose one of the challenges coming from World Vision, One Telecommunication, Municipality of Korça, DMO and Korsel.

The first day they got to know the criteria of the Hackathon. The next day they worked on the solutions and they tested it with the mentors Kustaa Valtonen and Jules Banning for 30 minutes each.

The third day was all about finalizing the projects and in the meantime the team members learned how to create a winning project. Out of 19 registered teams, 11 got to finals and waited for the evaluation coming from the challenge owners.

EU for Innovation will support top 3 teams in order for them to keep developing their projects. In the meantime, the opportunity of the collaboration with the challenge owners is another golden chance for the participating teams.
