CIVICA Research Hackathon Series

CIVICA Research Hackathon Series

Hosted in turn by each CIVICA university, the CIVICA Research Hackathon Series aims to strengthen research collaboration between CIVICA institutions. 

During each Hackathon, participants cooperate in teams in order to share their expertise and skills to solve a specific issue. Each Hackathon is centered around a certain theme. 

The events bring together researchers, students and interested individuals, based at CIVICA partner institutions and beyond, to solve pressing issues of our time. 

Recordings of each Hackathon will be available after the event. 


CIVICA Research brings together researchers from eight leading European universities in the social sciences to contribute knowledge and solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges. The project aims to strengthen the research & innovation pillar of the European University alliance CIVICA. CIVICA Research is co-funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. To stay up to date with CIVICA Research developments and opportunities, subscribe to the newsletter.
