PRIMEATHON is an umbrella concept for collaborative online
international learning (COIL) opportunities. The name comes from the
international association PRIME Networking and the COIL activities being
hackathon events. A hackathon event challenges students to get involved
in problem and solution based learning, where they must collaborate and
present a solution to a dilemma, in a limited time frame (24h).
Under the PRIMEATHON umbrella we have (so far) developed two different hackathon events: HACKOFFICE and HACKMARKET (in progress). The events take their starting point from the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals, focusing on sustainable solutions for future challenges.
