Abstract
When humanitarian and social challenges from the United Nations, Red Cross and Non- Governmental Organisations meet HEP expertise impactful innovation becomes reality. THE Port association at CERN combines physicists and engineers working on HEP topics in their day job with researchers, refugees, entrepreneurs, artists, designers, humanitarian workers and other creative minds. During 60-hour-long curated hackathons they co-create new technology opportunities, identify new methods, materials and processes, that can be used in the humanitarian context and sometimes even feedback into HEP. Examples from the last 5 humanitarian hackathons at CERN, whose outcomes are now utilised by UN, ICRC and others as well as future initiatives for HEP society impact, are presented.
