• Selection Criteria

    According to these five criteria, our jury team will rate the submitted solutions.

    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.
