The Baltic Sea Region Hackathon is an upcoming event scheduled to take place in Lübeck, Germany from 7-9 July 2023. The event is aimed at young people between the ages of 18 and 25 with knowledge in IT, data, and programming. The hackathon is being hosted by the Technical University of Applied Sciences (TH Lübeck) and is organised to create a space for like-minded young IT enthusiasts to network, learn about Baltic Sea Region cooperation, and discover new ways of getting involved in international collaboration with an IT twist.
The theme of the hackathon will be disinformation, and participants will create innovative projects during the event that have the potential for implementation in the Baltic Sea Region. The event is being developed with consideration to the Baltic Sea Region Youth Forum, which will be launched in the first half of 2023. The outcomes of the hackathon will help both the forum and the CBSS to engage youth in regional cooperation and utilize the developed results in practice.
The hackathon is financed by the German federal state of Schleswig-Holstein and organised in conjunction with the CBSS and the Technical University of Applied Sciences (TH Lübeck).
