The European Commission launched the Competitive Space Start-ups for Innovation Initiative (CASSINI) to put Europe on the frontier of digital technologies.

GREECE HACKATHON is welcoming participants from Greece, Italy, Bulgaria, and Romania!

 

The participants will win prizes on a local and European level! The top three teams of the CASSINI Hackathon Greece will win their share of the €5,000 prize pool!
