Eurostat is organising the third round of the European Big Data Hackathon from 26 February – 5 March 2021 as a fully virtual event. The purpose of this year’s edition of the hackathon is to foster expertise in using Big Data sources while producing innovative ideas for products and tools in the domain of international trade networks in support of the European Commission policy DGs.
Eurostat is providing several data sets, including “balanced global trade in goods” and COMEXT, which should be combined and analysed applying network functionality.
The European Big Data Hackathon is organised by the European Commission (Eurostat) and gathers teams from all over Europe to compete for a statistical challenge. The teams develop innovative approaches, applications and data products combining official statistics and big data that can inform policy makers in pressing policy questions facing Europe.
