LAWMORE the legal partner of Hack the crisis

Hack the crisis is the biggest virtual hackaton in Poland dedicated to issues connected with the COVID-19 epidemic under the patronage of the Ministry of Digitalisation and GovTech Poland.

We are very proud to be chosen as the legal partner of this event. As Lawmore, we support the participants from the legal side, mainly in the field of personal data processing and copyrights. Already on this day, Bartłomiej Serafinowicz, Attorney at Law, conducted on-line training related to the GDPR.

The objective of the event is to take advantage of the creative potential of entrepreneurs, developers, scientific teams, and other technology creators to develop solutions that may practically support the Government and the society in the current circumstances. The solutions proposed by the participants should provide for the sense of hope and safety in the face of an advancing crisis and give the society access to reliable information.

The organisers designated three challenges connected with the current situation that affect the international community:

  • Isolation
  • Education
  • Facts and data

The objective of the event is to provide real help to people by using technological solutions that fit the foregoing categories. The formula of the event is designed so as the participants carry out projects that can be prototyped within 3-5 days.

Participants may submit their ideas or join existing teams on the Slack platform available here:

The event is organised by DO OK S.A. The strategic partner of HackCrisis: Tech for Good is GovTech Poland and the Office of the Prime Minister of the Republic of Poland.

Polish Prime Minister funded 10 cash prizes for the best projects: 3 prizes of PLN 20,000 for the winners in a relevant category and 7 prizes of PLN 6,000 each for other projects that will be found worth implementing. Participation in the hackaton is free of charge.
