The event kicks-off on Friday, 8 March 2019, with a welcome reception. It is at this point that the teams get to know the particular policy question or statistical challenge for which they will be creating a data product.

The following two days are made of long frantic hacking with sporadic stops for food and drinks.

On Monday 11 March 2019, the teams will move to the venue of the NTTS 2019, in the Charlemagne building. In the morning, the teams will have around 10 minutes to present their prototypes. During lunch time, the evaluation panels will evaluate all prototypes. The first 6 will be announced after lunch and the 4th, 5th and 6th prizes will be awarded.

Most of the Monday afternoon will then be dedicated to the follow-up of the Hackathon. The teams will have the opportunity to network and discuss future collaboration.

On Tuesday the Hackathon award ceremony will take place during the openning session of the NTTS . The 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes will be awarded and the three teams will make longer presentations of their prototypes.
