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

For eight weeks you and your teammates will work in the manner that you deem best for your project. 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. Also, mentors coming from the data science industry are there to support you with inputs, tools and feedback. You will be able to use the facilities of the ETH Student Project House as meeting areas and for work.

Project closing

After eight weeks, you and your team will present your solutions at the ETH Student Project House. Each of the participants will receive a certificate of participation from the ETH Student Project House.
