Hackathon Hackers Europe

Hackathon Hackers Europe (or HHEU for short) is an organisation targeted at helping student lead hackathons around europe. We are here to bring the hackathon organiser and attendee community together to make hackathons easier to run and partipate in.

HHEU put on events throughout the year to help meet our objectives like the HHEU conference.


Is HHEU affiliated with Major League Hacking (MLH)?

HHEU is a community-driven collection of hackathon organisers who want to do more to support UK and European hackathons. While there is an overlap of interest between who’s involved in HHEU and MLH, they’re distinctly separate entities.

Is it free?

HHEU wants to support the hackathon community in the UK and Europe. In the past, events like our HHEU Unconference have been free to attend and have offered travel reimbursements.

HHEU Unconference was kindly supported by sponsors and used resources from HackNotts and DurHack. HHEU tries to keep all events open to everyone by making our events free and offer reasonable travel reimbursement where possible.

Where can I find out more information?

Information around running and attending hackathons can be found at our open source wiki Hack.athon.uk. For any further or personalised information from HHEU you can contact us using [email protected]!
