Nudgeathon 2018 - Call for entries!

Not sure what a Nudgeathon is?

Nudgeathon is a behavioural change competition, in which students develop solutions to real-life social issues. A sort of 'hackathon' for behavioural economics.

The University of Newcastle will be sending a team of 4 down to the event in Canberra to compete against other universities from around Australia. The winners will have the chance to present their policy to the Office of Prime Minister and Cabinet and implement their proposal at a state or federal level.

How to get involved

If you're interested in attending the 2018 Nudgeathon with team UoN, please send a short email expressing why you should be selected to no later than Sunday 10th June. Presentations may be held at a later date to narrow down the applicants.


2nd - 4th September

Crawford School of Public Policy (ANU), Canberra

Please note that this opportunity is only open to current students of the University of Newcastle, studying at the time of the competition.
