How will your code change the world?
To facilitate the development and launch of innovative, life-changing open technology, IBM has created Code and Response.
This $25 million, four-year initiative will build, fortify, test, and launch open technology solutions that help communities needing critical aid. Our focus for 2019 is Disaster Preparation and Recovery, with an emphasis on health and wellness.
As a launching point for open source programs like Call for Code and Clinton Global Initiative University, Code and Response will support the entire process of creating solutions for those most in need.
