Day 2: The X5GON hackathon winners

Great stuff! Congrats and well done to the teams from the University of Nantes and University Osnabruck for winning the competition and to UCL and Jožef Stefan Institute for taking part and presenting their solutions, apps and great ideas to the jury. We are as well extremely grateful to our jury Prateek Sibal, Ha Cole, Husna Ahmad, Kai-Uwe Kuhnberger and our panel of experts Katie Evans, Atia Rafiq, Zineb Mekouar, and Davor Orlic for being here in Paris and selecting the winning teams.

Finally, as our great colleague, Louisa Zanoun from the British Embassy in Paris mentioned in her posts “warm thanks to the wonderful Sasha Rubel from UNESCO for her inspiring keynote speech which reminded us that it is by working and acting together – students, academics, policy & decision-makers, industry, government, NGOs – that inequalities, including gender imbalance in the tech sector, can be addressed and hopefully reduced”.
