Due to the latest updates from the government, we decided that Impact Hub Basel and Café spurlos will remain closed to the public until further notice.
Nevertheless, we remain active and fight against the virus; by staying at home and doing what we do best to #InspireAndCreateChange through caring, connecting and co-creating! We are very happy to present to you #VersusVirus, the Swiss-wide virtual hackathon on 3-5 April 2020!
As part of Impact Hub Switzerland, we are amongst the 60+ partners that collaborate to make this biggest Swiss Online Hackathon ever happening; under the patronage of the Federal Department of Home Affairs (FDHA). We invite EVERYONE to participate to contribute to the collective intelligence; no matter if you are a researcher, area expert, technology specialist or a concerned and impact-driven citizen – together we will find fresh ideas and solutions to fight and deal with #COVID-19!
During 48 hours, people from all over Switzerland with a variety of backgrounds will collaborate to find solutions for the challenges that we are facing right now or will be facing soon in the following areas: Protection of risk groups, Prevention of proliferation, Data against Fake News, Economic impact, Quarantine & mental health, Hospital & Care, Family & Children, Training, Home & Team Work, After the crisis, Support & Solidarity, Art & Culture, Crime Reduction.
