All projects and deliverables must be submitted in English.



A hackathon is an event where participants collaborate intensively, to create software projects or solve challenges. Adapting the traditional hackathon format, the EU Code Week Hackathons take into consideration the age of the participants and cater to the unique skills, insights, and interests of adolescents.

Participants form teams to brainstorm, design, and code, aiming to produce a working solution or prototype by the event’s conclusion. Beyond fostering innovation and teamwork, teen hackathons offer a platform for young tech enthusiasts to learn, showcase their talents, and connect with like-minded peers.

The EU Code Week 2023 Hackathon is open to individuals between 15 and 19 years old, with a specific emphasis on STEM, computer science, design, engineering, ICT, and other related fields. To the extent possible, the teams should encompass both technical and functional competencies.




  • Travel to Brussels for the best 3 teams
  • Award ceremony to be held in person
  • The best 3 winning teams will participate in the EU Code Week Hackathon 2023 Award ceremony in Brussels.
