The event kicked-off on Sunday, 12 March 2017, with a welcome reception. It was at this point that the teams got to know the particular policy question for which they would be creating a data product.
The following two days were composed of long frantic hacking with sporadic stops for food and drinks.
The last day, Wednesday 15 March 2017, was even more frenetic. In the morning, the teams had 6 minutes to present their prototypes. During lunch time, the evaluation panels evaluated all prototypes. The first 6 were announced after lunch and the 4th, 5th and 6th prizes were awarded.
At the end of the afternoon, at 18:30, the Hackathon award ceremony took place in the Charlemagne building. The 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes were awarded and the three teams made longer presentations of their prototypes in a plenary session of the NTTS 2017.
The Hackathon officially finished with a joint cocktail between Hackathon and NTTS 2017 participants.
