Bring Down Counterfeiting 2022: Policy Hackathon
August 27 - November 5
Registration is now open for the Bring Down Counterfeiting 2022: Policy Hackathon.
This event is sponsored by George Mason University’s Terrorism, Transnational Crime and Corruption Center (TraCCC), Amazon, the Criminal Investigations Network and Analysis Center, and the National Crime Prevention Council. It is open to innovators of all abilities and skill sets.
The Hackathon will focus on policies and solutions to combat counterfeit products on e-commerce sites and the criminals that benefit from it. Counterfeiting is an industry-wide, global issue, that affects all retail channels.
Those interested in public policy/governance, international trade, law enforcement and transnational crime, computer science, data science/analysis, and AI/ML are encouraged to attend this event.
Teams will compete for more than $20,000 in prizes. Those that make it to the final round will be evaluated by an expert panel of judges. Bring a team or register on your own. Register today to attend the hackathon kick-off event on August 27, 2022. Hackathon registration closes on October 7, 2022.
The goal of this policy hackathon is to provide input for a technology-focused follow up challenge. Participants will have the opportunity to interact with experts and mentors from law enforcement, tech and retail industries, academia, government and, of course, Amazon.
