Hackathons seek environmental solutions to Covid-19
- Digital Sprint led by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and Cranfield University.
People across disciplines are invited to take part in a series of hackathons to crunch data to gain new insights into the impact of Covid-19.
The NERC Covid-19 Digital Sprint will take place over June, and organisers are calling on environmental researchers, health and social scientists, and data specialists to join the challenge.
Entrants will work together or individually to draw from key NERC digital assets and datasets to consider the environmental impacts and consequences of COVID-19 and create a wealth of open, digital, environmental solutions to the pandemic.
Awards of up to £3000 are available to teams and individuals for the solutions that best help us understand and address COVID-19 impact.
