WHAT IS THE COOPERATHON ?

The Cooperathon is the largest innovation competition in the world! It is a movement that brings together members of the community and organizations who value cooperation, innovation and entrepreneurship in order to have a positive impact on society. During a four-week period, these groups will work together on solutions to real problems that exist in today’s society.

Cooperathon 2018 focusses on four major tracks: Finance, Health, Education and Energy / Environment. Each track is part of the Sustainable Development Goals defined by the United Nations.

This year once again, Hacking Health is partnering with the Cooperathon as leader of the Health track.
