Digital Economy icon Digital Economy

This first datathon of its kind promotes re-use of #EUopendata from the EU Open Data Portal, the central access point to open data made available by the EU institutions, agencies and bodies. Data teams will demonstrate how open data from public institutions can be used to address specific policy or societal challenges and generate jobs and growth, further the digital single market or increase transparency. You can get all of CORDIS datasets on the EU Open Data Portal and download all EU-funded projects from Horizon 2020, FP7 and all the way back to FP1, in XML, CSV and Excel formats. Join #EUdatathon2017 now! Register your team and make a proposal for an app by 15 October. If your idea is preselected, you'll have three weeks until 12 November to develop your idea! Winners will be selected on 16 November during a one-day event in Brussels. Not wanting to hack but simply curious? Just register to attend the event on 16 November. More information about prizes will follow, but the winning team will have the chance to present their project at the European Big Data Value Forum in Versailles, on 21-23 November 2017, with travel and accommodation expenses paid. The datathon is being organised by the Estonian Presidency of the Council of the European Union together with the Publications Office of the European Union.
