Single digital gateway hackathon Brussels

Based in Belgium or happy to fly in? Register to the Brussels edition and compete to win the €5,000 reward with your team!

The Brussels teams’ challenge is…

To develop a reporting tool for flagging Single Market obstacles (task 1) and a feedback tool on the quality of services offered through the single digital gateway (task 2).

Teams will explore ways of unlocking the Single Market in Europe by designing and developing either a user-friendly reporting tool that encourages people to provide feedback and report what is not working, or possibly creating obstacles when exercising your internal market rights, or a user-friendly feedback tool to report how satisfied users are related to their expectations and the quality of the services and information provided through the gateway.
