Accountability Lab (AL) and the Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE) launched applications for our second HackCorruption cohort. HackCorruption Nepal will host 50 participants in Kathmandu for an innovative anti-corruption hackathon from April 27 to 30. HackCorruption is a hybrid Tech4Good event scheduled that aims to bring people together to co-create anti-corruption solutions. Participants will be welcomed from Nepal, Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan.
The overall goal of the hackathon is to prevent, deter, and combat corruption by stimulating the innovative application of technology to address accountability gaps and build systemic integrity. We are inviting applicants who are eager to tackle the following problem sets: (1) Budget and Ownership Transparency; (2) Open Contracting and Transparency in Public Procurement; and (3) Digital Citizenship to Constrain Corruption.
All travel expenses will be covered by Accountability Lab, including travel to the HackCorruption Boot Camp follow up session for winning teams on June 23, 2023.
Please share this opportunity with technologists and anti-corruption practitioners from the four target countries, and feel free to reach out to us via email at [email protected].
Applications are open on the website (www.hackcorruption.org) until February 26th. You can also view the HackCorruption timeline there.
HackCorruption is being hosted with support from the Bureau for International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) at the U.S. Department of State through the Anti-Corruption Solutions Through Emerging Technologies (ASET) program. ASET advances the U.S. Strategy on Countering Corruption.
