In what way does media disseminate scientific knowledge?
Can we make a difference between real information and fake news?
If you think you are up-to-date with the happening in the world, if you are critical with information, and if you are happy to discuss this with others, this competition is for you!
The main goal of the competition is to disseminate scientific knowledge for a wide range of target groups. During the event, teams will be working with a selected scientific journal article.
Date: 11 November, 2022, from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Venue: University of Pannonia (10. Egyetem Str. Veszprém, building B, 2nd floor, Conference Center)
Who can apply?
Teams with maximum 3 members can participate. Team members should be bachelor, master and/or PhD students active in semester 2022/2023. Altogether maximum 8 teams can participate the hackathon (first come, first served).
A hackathon is not just a competition but a full-day event focused on solving a specific problem using innovative solutions. It is highly dynamic with expert training sessions to help participants develop the competition tasks, so they learn and gain highly useful information in a competitive environment.
What is the theme of the Science For All Hackathon?
The hackathon is based on an academic publication written by the researchers of the University of Pannonia. The teams will be asked to process this scientific publication and present it to the general public in an understandable, “consumable” form through specific tasks. During the competition all teams work with the same scientific publication. The selected publication is shared with the participants at least one week before the competition.
