In this respect, she has devoted time and labour to participate at the #EUvsVirus# Hackathon (24-27/4/2020, project “Dynamic”, to help access to work and Universities whilst observing social distancing measures) and she is currently participating at the #Financial Times Innovative Lawyers – Global Legal Hackathon Challenge (April 24-May 22, 2020), a worldwide legal hackathon aimed to unleash the talent and creativity of the world’s legal industry to collaboratively innovate solutions to the most pressing legal, regulatory, and civil society challenges posed by the COVID-19 crisis that is currently engulfing the world. Kyriaki is leading project “RESOLVE” on connecting the whole legal sector online so as to create a unified legal market globally and facilitate global access to justice, most notably ADR (arbitration and mediation). The project responds to a challenge posted on the Financial Times Innovative Lawyers – Global Legal Hackathon by the Law, Information and Technology Lab @ Hong Kong University (LITE@HKU), aimed to provide solution in the times of Covid-19 and the pandemic for small-medium enterprises, social enterprises and start-ups.
