Humanitarian Hackathon (15 - 16 January 2019) Brussels ¶
By: Felix Emeka Anyiam on Dec. 19, 2018, 4:32 p.m.
The Humanitarian Hackathon is an initiative of the Belgian Ministry for Development Cooperation, Digital Agenda and Telecommunications. The event is organised by the World Food Programme (WFP), the leading agency fighting hunger worldwide, and by Hack Belgium Labs, the creator of Belgium's biggest multi-stakeholder hackathon.
Why? In the context of the growing humanitarian needs and limited funding, innovative solutions are crucial to assist the most vulnerable groups in a more effective and efficient way. Close collaboration between humanitarian organizations, research institutes, civil society and the private sector is a prerequisite for boosting the use of state-of-the-art technologies for the benefit of those left furthest behind.
The Humanitarian Hackathon is a two day event designed to generate solutions for today’s urgent humanitarian challenges. International and Belgian humanitarian organisations, donors, large companies, startups, academics and talented individuals will come together to generate new ideas, build prototypes and launch new projects that could help save millions of lives around the world.
Application deadline - December 27th, 2018
Join the Humanitarian Hackathon to create solutions saving lives and changing lives around the world.

I don't mind not knowing. It doesn't scare me. - Richard Feynman
To consult the statistician after an experiment is finished is often merely to ask him to conduct a post mortem examination. He can perhaps say what the experiment died of. -Ronald A. Fisher.
