prepare for a changed world

The 1st remote innovation marathon for the development of applications to tackle the pandemic. Together we support public infrastructures, society and the economy.




#stayhome #avcrowdhackathon

Proposing issues or problems or challenges that need a solution in society, health, entrepreneurship and economy (public submission of proposals - deliberation).

Developing innovative methodologies and applications that address these problems (participants - contestants).

Supporting this effort (mentors, sponsors, supporters, public organizations, companies, collective entities).



Need for communication, raising awareness, prevention and support of the population.

Enhancement of public and private infrastructures and services by providing goods and services.

Mechanisms and platforms using data for the provision of accurate information, forecasting and early warning.

The number of people working remotely is increasing and decentralized work is enhanced.

A new generation of startups inspired by the need to tackle coronavirus in the economy and society that can support the public and private sector is emerging.

The way we make purchases is changing and online commerce is developing.

The way we commute, travel and communicate is changing.

Production methods are changing, which is affecting global trade and the supply chain.

Countries will spend more money on health systems to be better prepared for the next time.


Innovation doesn't stop there. Instead, it becomes remote. With the use of new technologies and tools we can still be optimistic, active and creative. Now more than ever, we must all contribute to meeting challenges. We feel that we need to work on the new facts from our home and all together try to contribute to solutions that address the impact of the pandemic. Today we have the means to create innovative methodologies and applications for the new reality and help the business and social ecosystem of Greece adapt to it.
