IBM Call for Code Global Initiative

IBM and partners have launched the Call for Code Global Initiative, the largest and most ambitious effort to bring startup, academic and enterprise developers together to solve one of the most pressing societal issues of our time: preventing, responding to and recovering from natural disasters.

Through Call for Code, IBM and David Clark Cause are joining forces with the United Nations Human Rights Office and its human rights-based approach to humanitarian action, which focuses on securing the participation of affected groups in preparedness, response and recovery efforts, and bringing attention to the most excluded and marginalized populations.

Challenge Scope = Build applications that improve disaster preparedness and build resilient communities.

Participants will have access to IBM developer tools, assets from IBM Research labs, free code and training to jump – start their solutions. Award winners will receive IP protection, have the opportunity to present their solution to leading VCs and receive financial rewards. In addition, winning solutions will be deployed on the ground by our IBM’s Corporate Service Corps – in communities most in need around the world.

The Challenge begins June 19 and runs through August 21.
