The challenges

Techfugees France is coming back with a hackathon in Paris to find tech & innovative solutions to challenges faced by refugees.

Three main challenges will be presented on Friday, to be solved by the end of the weekend, with the possibility for more participants to come up with their own challenges to pitch. Find out about the challenges on the event page.


Schedule & Tools

A jury of leading figures from the local tech community will decide on the winners of incubation & sponsor prizes for the main three challenges on Sunday night while a “coup de coeur” prize will be provided to any pitch out of the three that will positively surprise the jury.

Former refugees and asylum seekers who have already settled in France will participate in the event to help teams understand challenges faced by new settlers and co-design solutions.

Talents from the tech community will mentor teams through the weekend.
