Hack4Good begins with a kick-off event at the ETH Student Project House. At the kick-off, the participating non-profits will present selected challenges and the ensuing projects they host with Hack4Good. The participants then form a team around each project. After the team-formation, workshops on project management specifically tailored to the context of data science will prepare you and your team for solving the challenges. You will also get to meet your teammates and make some first exploratory steps to understand your challenge and the data available.

During the project

During eight weeks you and your teammates will organize your project, distribute tasks and manage the project schedule. Over the entire course of the project, you will have a direct contact person on the side of the non-profits whom you can ask questions on the relevant data and discuss ideas with. Your team will also be supported inputs, tools and feedback by a mentor who is an industry-experienced data scientist. You will be able to use the facilities of the ETH Student Project House as meeting areas and for work.


There are two full days, where everybody comes together and each team spends time to work on their solution.

Project closing

After eight weeks, you and your team will present your solutions. Each of the participants will receive a certificate of participation.
