The Humanitarian Innovation Hackathon is a weekend-long virtual event designed for university students to work collaboratively in cross-discipline teams to create technology-driven solutions for the most pressing humanitarian challenges.

Participants are asked to identify practical solutions for real and current problems from a current international humanitarian response context.

The 2021 Humanitarian Innovation Hackathon will take place 23-25 July. This year’s event will be a hybrid, with a combination of digital and in-person activities. We have received great support from our partners RedR and are expanding our partnership to include RMIT, which will be hosting a satellite site during the event

In 2020, the event saw over 200 students virtually come together to address topics including climate change-induced population displacement, educating for the future, aiding island communities and the provision of clean water.
