Kampala INSPIRE Hackathon 2020: Covid-19 Update

Dear Kampala INSPIRE Hackathon 2020 participants,

Taking into account the coronavirus outbreak that has created an unpredictable and unprecedented situation for everyone, we are considering making Kampala INSPIRE Hackathon 2020 fully virtual to minimize the need of any travel. This could mean the cancellation of in-situ part of the hackathon at Makerere University in Kampala and the final presentation of results during IST Africa conference. 

Nevertheless, we don’t want to deprive you of this unique opportunity of cooperating with African and European experts and therefore we have no plans to cancel the Kampala INSPIRE Hackathon 2020 itself – the hackathon continues to run remotely until May 2020 and after that, there would be a final online workshop/webinar, where the results of the hackathon would be presented.

You can also look forward to certificates attesting to your participation in the Kampala Hackathon, which will be sent via email in case of cancellation of in-situ part.  

This information about cancellation of in-situ part of hackathon is not final and we are going to keep you up-to-date in next days with respect to the situation –  so let’s stay tuned and keep on hacking!

If you are interested in Kampala INSPIRE Hackathon 2020 and haven’t been registered yet, do not hesitate to register here.
