SNF Nostos Hackathon

This summer, SNF Nostos invites you to participate in the first SNF Nostos Hackathon! Two online events, designed for different knowledge and skill levels, revolve around a common goal: transforming our relationship with technology.

What is a hackathon? In general, it’s an event during which coders and other tech professionals try to solve problems using programming. But viewed more broadly, a hackathon is any activity that requires us to use our ingenuity to solve a set of problems.

The SNF Nostos Hackathon is an inclusive event, designed for everyone who wants to take part—from seasoned coders to people with no prior experience. It includes two events: The SNF Nostos Hackathon 101: Life Reprogrammed – Enhancing Our Humanity in the Digital Age, open to everyone with the emphasis on experimentation and learning, and the SNF Nostos Coder Hackathon: Humanizing Technology - Enhancing Our Humanity in the Digital Age, where you can dive further into code and data.

Human life is all about solving problems to meet our needs, helping others, and seeking happiness. Hackathons reproduce this quest in miniature as a satisfying challenge, stretching our skills in thinking and reasoning and our knowledge of code and programming. In these hackathons we explore the intersection between technology, psychology, and society.

The hackathon events are organized in partnership with Microsoft and learn-tech.io.

Register today to participate, play, learn, and the chance to win an iPad Pro!

One winning team will be selected from each hackathon category (Hackathon 101 & Coder Hackathon) based on the jury’s assessment. 

The winners will be announced during the Award Ceremony that will take place on Sunday, August 29th, at 20:00, at the SNFCC Lighthouse, and each winner will receive an iPad Pro 11-inch Wi-Fi / 5G /256GB. The event will be livestreamed at snfnostos.org

The jury is comprised by representatives of the organizations that collaborated for the production of SNF Nostos Hackathon: Microsoft (1 member), learn-tech.io (1 member), Ampersand (&) Learning & Technology (1 member), Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) (2 members).
