About the Hackathon
The year 2020 has been hard on many communities across the world, the student community is a prominent one amongst them. However, with substantial difficulties and limited access to on-campus educational resources we, as a community, have found ways to mitigate any loss of learnings.
The pandemic has exposed a lot of gaps in our policy and governance structures, these long unresolved issues and gaps have accentuated the impact of the pandemic on the Nation’s daily life. Impeccable Public Policies would define the next decade.
The Policy Hackathon 2021 is a unique virtual platform competition which will engage students from renowned institutions across disciplines to deal with important policy issues concerning India for the next decade. The Hackathon will also feature panel discussion with eminent academicians, activists and practitioners on issues of public concern.
The participating teams will formulate a policy to address a problem of their choice from multiple streams. The policy solution will be judged and marked on written submission and a brief presentation by a Jury consisting of leading public policy professionals.
A team is open to choose more than one stream, individual members can be part of more than one team.
The competition is open to students from all disciplines provided their institute is recognized and registered with a relevant regulating body in the field. The formation of cross-university teams (i.e. teams with students from different universities) is not permitted.
Each team shall consist of a minimum of two members and a maximum of four members. The teams shall nominate one member for the final presentation.
