    1. Relevance for Swiss ecosystem: Even though the participation in the Hackathon is not restricted to Switzerland, the implementation of highlighted projects needs to be planned nationally.
    2. The relevance of the solution in addressing the specific challenge: The solution is addressing the stated problem and is answering the proposed challenge
    3. Potential for impact on the long term: Is this solution feasible? Is it scalable? Transferability potential (how will the solution be applied in practice?)
    4. Progress in the last 48 hours: Projects in different stages of development have been submitted to the Hackathon, however, highlights will be selected among those who made the biggest progress during #versusvirus.
    5. Value-added: We want to make sure that projects are inspired by a collaborative spirit and adding value on each other.

    • 30 seconds: your solution explained and why it’s feasible

    2. Presentation: short presentation of your idea; think of the selection criteria (MUST)


    Please prepare a presentation describing who’s in your team, the challenge your team is tackling, your solution and if you want to continue, what your next steps are. The structure of your presentation could look like this:

    • Slide 1: Project title & challenge name

    You could use Google Presentation; Powerpoint or any other programme that is familiar to you.

    3. Any other support material: prototypes, website, application, canvas, photos, ...
