On the 26th-28th May, the Serbian tech community will descend upon Belgrade for the second Techfugees hackathon.
The event will bring together designers, technologists, refugees, aid and governmental organisations with the addition of social science students from multiple countries. The main focus will be to create sustainable and creative solutions for refugee integration, which is seen as one of the rising issues in European countries that have accepted a large number of refugees.
As the event will be part of the Smart City Festival, special attention will be given to the use of smart city technologies to achieve this goal. This edition will also fuse with the largest simulation of the EU decision-making process in the world, Belgrade Model EU, that will attract some of the brightest social science students from across the continent.
Under the banner of Integration sits education, employment, health, culture & language, and legal aid.
