Hacking for Allies (H4A) is a new program being run in partnership with the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Washington D.C, Innovation Norway (IN) and the Norwegian Defense Research Establishment (FFI), and is based on the same concepts as the DoD sponsored and congressionally supported Hacking for Defense (H4D) program.

The goal of H4A is to broaden the exposure of DoD to innovative teams and technology from Allied nations that can potentially solve challenging problems common to both the US and its Allies. In this iteration of H4A, entrepreneur teams from Norway will work on several problems common to the US and Norway, and including problem sponsors from both the US and Norwegian militaries helping them to validate the problem and discover product-mission fit.
