#EUdatathon - 16 November

The Estonian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, together with the Publications Office of the European Union, are organising a 'datathon' to promote the re-use of #EUopendata from the EU Open Data Portal ( The Open Data Portal is the central access point to the open data made available by the EU institutions, agencies and bodies. It is fed, in part, using Eurostat's data.

Data teams will be able to demonstrate how open data from public institutions can be used to address specific policy or societal challenges and promote innovative services, reflecting certain priorities of the Juncker Commission.

To take part, register your team and make a proposal for an app by 8 October. If your idea is preselected, you will have 4 weeks until 12 November to develop your idea. Winners will be selected on 16 November during an event in Brussels.

If you do not want to hack but are 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.
