EU Datathon 2019: linking EU data and national dataPosted by in Uncategorized
The Publications Office of the European Union and the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the European Union are the organisers of the EU Datathon 2019, which is a competition intended to highlight the potential of linking EU data and national data as well as to promote innovation and digitalisation opportunities by using open data. The availability of these open datasets can be characterised as ‘big data’ requiring data science skills.
Participants are invited to develop applications, visualisations and insights using at least one dataset produced by the EU Institutions, Agencies and bodies available on the EU Open Data Portal and combine it with at least one dataset on the European Data Portal, the European Central Bank, Eurostat Website and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
The competition is supported by the European Parliament’s Preparatory Action “Linked Open Data in the European Public Administration” and the European Commission ISA² programme (Interoperability solutions for public administrations, businesses and citizen).
