We are delighted to announce that Professor Alan Brown has been announced as a judge in Digital Jersey’s COVID-19 hackathon taking place this week. Professor Brown joins a distinguished panel that will be assessing the entries to decide who is awarded support from a £30,000 prize pool.

Jersey is home to many skilled digital professionals who have been invited to focus their energy to create tech solutions to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. Digital Jersey will support community-led innovators to quickly build and deploy new useful products and services. A pool of £30,000 has been provided to support projects with a big positive local impact in the short term. In partnership with Tekex and Envestors Digital Jersey is also working to open further channels of support for highly innovative projects which will serve to help the Jersey economy recover and flourish in the months to come.
