INNOVATION AND DEMOCRACY CAME TOGETHER AT DEMOCRACY TECH HACKATHON
The e-Governance Agency (EGA) was invited to participate in the Democracy Tech Hackathon as a leading expert and the lead institution in the field of digitalization in Moldova.
Igor Bercu, the head of the Digital Platforms Department of EGA and e-governance expert, presented the government’s digital ecosystem to the young participants, expressing hope that one day the digital solution designed during the Hackathon will become part of this ecosystem and will increase transparency in the country’s public areas.
This is the second Democracy Tech Hackathon taking place in Chisinau. For two days (October 27 and 28) innovation and technology supported the values of democracy and freedom. Developers, designers, data analysts, business people and policy experts worked in teams to design creative solutions to the challenges democracy is facing today.
The Hackathon was part of the Moldova DemTech Conference and was organized by YEP Moldova in partnership with the Alliance of Democracies Foundation with the support of USAID Moldova and Comunitatea Mea Programme.
