Find creative digital solutions for the problems caused by the spread of COVID-19 – that was the challenge in a hackathon organised by the RISE Center for Excellence in Research and Innovation, coordinated by the municipality of Nicosia, and HackCyprus. 198 people participated in the competition in the beginning of April 2020. 15 projects around the themes ‘Save Lives, ‘Save Communities’, ‘Save Businesses’ and ‘Save Mental Well-Being’ made it into the final report. The ideas reach from a 3D game to enjoy everyday life under corona, including dancing and drinks, over a crowdfunding platform for local businesses to an app for digital healthcare, so doctors can take care of their patients who are at home.
