About CAST Virtual Hackathon
CAST Virtual Hackathon aims to identify effective answers to the challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic poses to the tourism sector.
In this framework the we are searching for innovative solutions on two main topics:

The Hackathon is organised by EBN in collaboration with Creative Business Cup and WestBIC.
