EMx Challenges


 

Join Mines in helping our Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) an agency of the United States Department of Homeland Security to create and deliver excellent sustainable solutions in response to COVID-19.  These challenges are part of a series, with the first EMx Flash Challenge beginning with defining the problem.  The qualifiers from the first EMx Flash Challenge will advance to the second phase of EMx Hackathon, where teams will solve the problems they identified during the EMx Flash Challenge.
