Semi-Virtual Event

As a result of the imposed restrictions on events due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2021 edition of Eurekathon will take place mostly on a virtual event platform. This platform will be where all the action takes place during the main competition (12-14 November). Only the final event will be presential, if possible, with the finalists teams and the jury, on November 20th.
