FAQ

PARTICIPATION AND TEAMS

What is Hack for Good?

A Hackathon, a development marathon organized by Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation to foster the development of technological solutions to real social challenges.

Who can participate?

We are inviting makers - bold people that are not afraid of a good challenge. Hack For Good Gulbenkian is intended for programmers, managers, creative people, and other people, who want and have the ability to develop technological solutions to solve the challenges we present. The teams should preferably be multidisciplinary.

I don’t have a team. Can I participate?

Only teams with between 3 to 5 elements can participate in Hack For Good Gulbenkian. If you don’t have a team, you can apply, but you must find your team before the event. After applying, you’ll be invited to join a Facebook group where you’ll find your team.

How do I apply?

Applications are now closed!

I already have a technology. Can I participate?

Teams can have a technology developed, but the project cannot have been invested, participate in an acceleration program or have received a financial award to the date of the event.

How must be my team?

Multidisciplinary, with 3 to 5 elements.

IDEAS AND SOLUTIONS

Do I have to have an idea to participate?

That’s the ideal scenario. If your team doesn’t have an idea when applying, you’ll have to find one to work on during the event.

What should I build?

Tech solutions, hardware or software, developed to solve problems related to the challenges we present here.
You can develop apps for mobile, web, desktop, a game, a device... The limit is in your imagination!

EVALUATION AND CONTENT

I can’t stay during the whole agenda. Can I still be part of the event?

The participant and the team will only be up to present the project on stage if at least 2 members of the team were in the venue during the totality of the agenda.

What are the evaluation criteria to win?

Does the solution face one of the challenges associated with refugees? Is the solution technological and innovative? The prototype is functional? Does the team have the capacity of taking the project further? There’s a possible business model for the product?

The intellectual property of the project developed during the hackathon belongs to whom?

Please refer to section E of the Terms and Conditions.

Who are the Mentors?

Professionals working with refugees will help you understand the challenges; refugees with whom you can talk to, to develop better solutions for them, and also technical mentors who will help unlock technological challenges.

PRATICAL ISSUES

What should I bring?

Teams will have access to Wi-Fi, devices and technologies that will support thedevelopment of projects. We cannot provide computers to everyone, you must bring your own and other equipment you’ll need.

What about food?

This challenge can only be successfully overcome if we all are well fed. Meals are provided for the entire duration of the event.
