Dear colleagues,

We would like to invite you  to join the online event on 6th May 2020 at 12 PM CEST  concluding the Kampala INSPIRE hackathon. You will learn about the results achieved by 10 teams who have addressed the 10 challenges that covers agriculture, food security,  citizen science and more.

The INSPIRE hackathons are not a competition, rather the main focus is building relationships, making rapid developments, and collecting ideas for future research and innovation. The goal of the Kampala INSPIRE Virtual Hackathon 2020 is to continue to build and strengthen relationships between several EU projects and African communities that started in 2019 with the Nairobi INSPIRE hackathon<https://www.plan4all.eu/2019/06/nairobi-inspire-hackathon-2019-intercontinental-engagement-in-open-science-innovation-and-data/>.

You are invited to join us in celebrating the fruits of this international collaboration to support a sustainable Africa. The INSPIRE hackathon is not an event, it is a process. You can read more about the projects at https://www.plan4all.eu/updates/kampala-inspire-hackathon-2020-challenges/

The awards ceremony is where the top 3 teams/results will be announced by the jury. The results from the Kampala INSPIRE hackathon are an important basis for further collaborations, for new project developments, and for inspiration and use.
