The 10 challenges

This year you can either register to East Sweden Hack with your own idea or you can apply to one of the 10 challenges that we collected from our Citizens Hacks. You find the 10 challenges here.

Psst… We like challenges as much as we like innovation. These ideas are just guidelines to a society challenge that needs to be solved. Try to come up with your own idea on how it could be solved.
