As announced in one of the European Data Portal's recent news items, the organisation of the EU Open Data Portal Datathon 2017 is well under way. We hope you have saved the date for the final event on 16 November 2017 in Brussels!
As a part of the EU Datathon 2017 competition, data publishers will have the opportunity to highlight and promote their datasets during a live webinar to be held on 28 September 2017. The audience will consist of participants in the competition.
The webinar marks the first phase of the EU Datathon. The webinar (registration optional) explaining EU datasets and the EU Open Data Portal will allow participants to learn more about the datasets they are interested in. During the webinar, data publishers will reflect on questions such as:
- How did you produce the data?
- Why is this data important?
- What could be improved in the dataset and what are its limitations?
- What do you think the dataset could still reveal, e.g. if combined with other data or technologies?
