The health effects and current breaks in economic activity caused by the COVID-19 pandemic will cause global recessions and an increasing number of people will return to living in extreme poverty. This calls for a new collaborative approach of creativity, entrepreneurship, research, education, decision making on an international scale.
TheHack4Resilience is a multi-city co-creation platform aimed at building Big Data Applications for the COVID-19 Observatory. Together we will be developing prototypes and technologies for data-driven governance which will help public officials deal with the pandemic and better prepare for a resilient society.
The ResilientSociety, together with other partners, organizes ideation and co-creation process in the form of a sprint across 5 cities: Hyderabad (India), Bangkok (Thailand), Bandung (Indonesia), Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam), Den Haag/Rotterdam (The Netherlands)
In a period of two weeks a series of events, supporting approximately 15 teams, will be deployed to help each team arrive at a single prototype. We aim to recruit three teams per city teams composed of students and startups and individuals passionate about creating thriving societies.
We offer up to 2500 Euros in financial awards to winning teams and the opportunity to present their work to a relevant audience from public and private organizations.
The use cases are built around the needs of public officials in relation to the COVID-19 crisis from different phases of the pandemic: response, recovery, and resilience. The aim is to provide government representatives with data and tooling that can support their decision making processes with actionable intelligence.
There will be a maximum of 3 teams per city. Apply as a team or as an individual. Teams should have a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 6 people. Looking for developers, artificial intelligence and machine learning experts, GIS and remote sensing data enthusiasts, design thinkers, students, entrepreneurs, for-profit companies, and NGOs.
