  • Identify vulnerability due to COVID-19 pandemic
  • Measure the impact of interventions
  • Identify opportunities arising from COVID-19
  • Help to understand and analyse COVID-19 X-wave outbreaks
  • Female-led teams comprising two to five members per team
  • Be available for the period of the hackathon which starts Dec. 1 and ends Dec. 2, 2020
Mentors will be available for persons who may be taking first steps in data sciences. Judges will be drawn from academia, the focus industries and business.
