The “nexHack edtech” is currently accepting Japanese/Swiss teams and individuals to join the virtual Hackathon from 6 - 8 November 2020. Anyone with ideas and an interest in international education is welcome to join the event individually or as a pre-formed team for this international, 48h-Hackathon in order to develop edtech-solutions relating to two challenges in the field of international education.
One of the criteria for building teams is that at least one participant must be international (I.e. an international student); in case of a primary non-Swiss team, at least one team member has to be Swiss. Please visit the official website for more reasons to participate, the registration link and the participation details.
The winning team will receive vouchers to attend a summer or winter school at a Swiss university, and the top teams with the most promising idea and prototype will have an opportunity to apply for seed-funding (up to CHF 15’000.-) with Movetia.
The event is organized by Movetia and swissnex India/Boston.
