About

The EUhackathon concept identifies pressing policy issues and translates them into a new pragmatic approach which aims to build a bridge between policymakers and the world of coders, developers and hackers to see how Code can help Law.

This year, the 2nd Edition of the EUhackathon is taking place on 20 and 21 June 2012, and the theme is ‘Hack4Kids!’

The Hack4Kids (H4K) event will be the second ‘hackathon’ organised in conjunction with the European institutions in Brussels. As was the case last year, the goal is to build a bridge between the ‘old’ (i.e. the European Institutions and law-makers) and the ‘new’ world (i.e. the Internet and the coders/developers), with the additional dimension of kids being the key end-users and actively involved in the jury.

The Hack4Kids EUhackathon revolves around two tracks: 1) a child safety and 2) a child creativity track.
Selected applicants have their travel and accommodation costs covered and the winner or winning team in each track will be awarded €5.000, courtesy of our sponsors.

The EUhackathons are organized by N-square Consulting:

Caroline De Cock

Caroline is the Managing Director of N-square. She considers herself a redeeming lawyer and hopes one day to get all policy-makers hooked to the right type of code.

Herman Rucic

Herman is Policy Advisor at N-square and it’s his enthusiasm after the first hackathon that convinced us to pull off this second edition.
