MEU people + refugees + developers = real solutions.


Every EU simulation generates new ideas to solve some of the Europe’s most burning issues. Imagine if we could create real solutions based on those ideas. And by doing this help solve real problems.

Together with Techfugees, we are striving to find solutions on refugee integration in the smart cities of the future. MEU.hackathon is a part of the Smart Cities Festival, organized jointly by BEUM Association and Friedrich Naumann Foundation.

Hackathon?

It's a continuous event where multidisciplinary teams create digital solutions to set challenges within a very strict timefrime (48h in our case). We aim to gather developers, activists, students and refugees together in order to produce most creative and viable solutions.

Model EU?

An interactive simulation of the EU decision-making process. Participants take active roles of Members of the European Parliament, Ministers of the Council, Journalists and Lobbyists.
Belgrade MEU has gathered over 1500 people from over 60 countries in the last 6 editions.

Event Schedule.

Want to know what to expect? Here is the provisional MEU.Hackathon2017 schedule. Stay tuned for more news about the venues and location.

Meals, snacks and refreshments will be provided for the hackathon participants throughout the 48h.
