Watson Institute

Registration is now open until March 1

Passionate about humanitarian issues? Want to share your ideas with others in a collaborative environment? Do you have an innovative idea to aid humanitarian efforts across the world? Register for Hack for Humanity!

The Humanitarian Innovation Initiative is holding its inaugural Humanitarian Hackathon on March 17 and 18 which will bring together students from across Rhode Island to learn about the most pressing needs in the humanitarian sphere. Our goal is to stimulate creative ideas for innovative programs or technologies that could help improve the lives of disaster and conflict-affected communities around the world. This year's hackathon challenges will all be viewed through the lens of the ongoing Rohingya Refugee Crisis.

Students from all disciplines and concentrations are encouraged to participate! (No coding experience necessary.) Register as a team or as an individual. All levels of experience welcome!
