Save the date and join the EU Datathon 2019 on 13 June 2019 in Brussels, Belgium! The Publications Office of the European Union is organising the third edition of the EU Datathon competition in partnership with the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the European Union. This year again the EDP is happy to support the EU Datathon and be a jury member to award the most promising proposals.
The EU Datathon 2019 aims to stimulate the use and re-use of open data and to support competitors in showcasing their data skills and innovative ideas. Participants are invited to develop apps and interactive visualisations offering new services or public information insights to citizens, public authorities and businesses. This year, participants must use at least one dataset made available by EU Institutions and can compete in one horizontal or two thematic challenges:
- Challenge 1: Innovative ideas through EU open data.
- Challenge 2: New insights into economics and finance.
- Challenge 3: Tackling climate change.
Submit your ideas by 24 March 2019 for a chance to win one of the cash prizes in each challenge!
