Description

New open innovation approaches such as hackathons are particularly relevant to strengthening citizen engagement for a fast and inclusive uptake of innovative solutions. With the aim to test the hackathon model as a method to engage citizens and develop innovative and feasible solutions to citizens’ needs while valorising knowledge, DG RTD carried out a six-month experiment – CitizensHack2022.

The current document draws on this experience as well as further consultations with experts and practitioners to develop practical guidelines for hackathons as a tool to valorise knowledge with citizens on the driving seat. It is intended to be used as a “living document”, to be further developed and enriched with feedback from practitioners in the field and stakeholders.
