Meet and Code Award New this year, Meet and Code will be awarding top exemplary events and highlighting their activities to a wider audience. The awards will be given out for three categories:
- Kick and Code (topic category)
Meet and Code events that either seek to solve a football related problem with IT or use football as a topic to bring coding to kids. We are looking for events that connect these two topics in a creative and purposeful way in order to reach the target group and bring them closer to the world of coding and IT.
Meet and Code events that either develop and promote creative teaching methods and/or explore current IT/digital topics. We are looking for events that are innovative in their ways of reaching the target group and connecting it with IT related topics, as well as events that pick up trendsetting, future-shaping and disruptive technologies like IoT, Blockchain, AI, 3D printing, etc.
Meet and Code events that use IT or other digital topics to address and reduce inequalities present in their community or general society. We are looking for events that increase equal opportunities, promote tolerance and dismantle inequalities based on gender, race, religion, disabilities, social and economic status etc.
In each category, five events will be honoured and two representatives of each organisation will be invited to a two-day closing event at the SAP headquarters in Walldorf. In addition, the first place winner of each category will receive a prize of 2.500 euros.
This initiative was developed by Haus des Stiftens gGmbH – Germany, and is financially supported by the German company SAP, with headquarters in Walldorf.
