Open data is freely available information that everyone has the right to use to create new products and services. A study by the European Commission reveals that the further economic potential for using open data in Latvia may reach 70 million. euro. We invite hackathon members to discover the potential of open data and to create services useful to local governments, their residents, businesses or tourists.
The Open Data Hackathon for Municipalities will take place on October 18 and 19, 2019, at Vidzeme University of Applied Sciences, Terbatas Street 10, Valmiera (Latvia).
Money prizes for a team (2-5 people per team).
Other prizes from hackathon supporters - Valmiera Drama Theatre, Tech Chill.
Registration will close on October 16 or when the expected number of participants is reached. Organizers reserve the right to refuse participation to ensure that hackathon participants include technology and data experts and people with ideas. Expected number of participants: 80 participants. Participation fee: None.
During Hackathon, participants can be photographed and filmed, and materials will be used for publicity. The organizers reserve the right to specify the terms of participation before the start of the hackathon.
Before the hackathon, the webinar will be held on June 13 and September 12, where local government representatives will be introduced to the idea of open data and local governments will be invited to open data to hackathon participants.
