The Nordic Network for Adult Learning is looking for 25 motivated students for an intensive innovation camp (hackathon). The overarching theme for the hackathon is: Digital Inclusion: How can we reach different groups of hard-to-reach learners and support their digital inclusion?
This event is part of a European-wide Hackathon. During these days similar hackathons will take place all over Europe, and the winner from each event also participate in the DigiEduHack-challenge with a chance to win even more recognition and prizes.
During the innovation camp, you will work in groups engaging in creative processes to generate ideas and solutions.
The hackathon will provide a platform for the coolest and wildest ideas from students with diverse backgrounds and skills: educational, business, health, engineering, design, entrepreneurial skills, and many more. Students from all VIA campuses are welcome to participate.
Mentors will come from the Nordic network on digital inclusion to closely work with you and your group providing feedback on your work throughout the innovation champ. Experts will contribute with short interventions on the topic, research, and how to create a winning pitch.
What do you gain from participating?
✅ Gain experience in innovation, problem-solving, and digital inclusion
✅ A valuable learning process where you can quickly see the results of your thoughts and ideas
✅ A new network, a strong addition to your CV, and a participation certificate you can use in the future when applying for jobs or projects.

The hackathon is over three days: on November 7, 8 and 9th. All days from 9 am to 5 pm (in total 24 hours).

It is free to join. You need to be able to participate in all three days – November 7, 8 and 9th from 9 am to 5 pm.
