On 24-26 April, the European Commission, led by the European Innovation Council and in close collaboration with the EU member states, hosted a Pan-European Matchathon to connect civil society, innovators, partners, and investors across Europe in order to develop innovative solutions for coronavirus-related challenges.

Over 30,000 people from across the EU and beyond submitted 2,164 projects related to various domains including health and life (899), business continuity (381), remote working and education (272), social and political cohesion (453), digital finance (76), and other challenges (83).

Our esteemed jurors then selected 117 finalists and winners, who have been invited to the upcoming EUvsVirus Matchathon (22-25 May), which will include a Demo Day (21 May). During this event, we will help these teams match with corporates, investors, accelerators, venture capitalists, etc. around the world to put their innovative solutions into production and save lives.
