The Kosovo Innovation Camp draws on the global experiences of Social Innovation Camp to create an event tailored for the local population and context. This first-ever Pristina event is one of the activities under the Innovation Lab Kosovo’s newly-launched ‘third pillar’ – the Youth Advocacy Platform (YAP!) – in partnership with Social Innovation Camp experts, and involves local and international software developers, designers and issue experts, along with young people who have first-hand knowledge of Kosovo`s existing social challenges.
The Kosovo Innovation Camp is open to any young person between the ages of 16-29. All that is needed for application is a Kosovo ID and a desire to share and develop innovative ideas that could bring about positive social change using web and mobile technologies. The top three teams will be sponsored for a 6 month period following the camp to further develop their prototype into a viable market product.
The Kosovo Innovation Camp is 48 hour event that takes place over a single weekend. Usually, it starts on Friday (to leave time for the after-party upon conclusion of the camp!). This event will be organized for the first time in Kosovo and will be held in the Innovations Lab in Pristina.
