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 in the first out of three challenges:
Challenge 1: Innovative ideas through EU open data.
Challenge 2: New insights into economics and finance.
Challenge 3: Tackling climate change.
The EU Datathon is an annual event that aims to stimulate the 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 that offer new services or insights to citizens, public authorities, and businesses. Data enthusiasts across Europe are invited to join the event, get inspired by the pitches, and network with people who are also passionate about data.
