Unfortunately, recent changes have brought about detrimental consequences for other aspects of our society. Production lines are shut down and global supply chains disrupted, bars and restaurants were forced to close their doors and hospitals are struggling to accommodate a growing influx of patients.
But, as the global economy totters in the face of this global challenge, a new realm of opportunity is opening up. In times of crisis, the real heroes stand up and work together. Those with the farsighted optimism to see the silver lining and unite in their innovation and creativity will be the pioneers leading us to a better future.
SACA in short

At the end of the two week program you will videopitch your solution in front of an expert jury with the chance to win the Students Against Corona Awards and the money prize that comes with it.
