EASO is a partner in the fourth edition of EU Datathon, a competition organised every year by the EU Open Data Portal team to promote innovation and digital transformation opportunities through the re-use of EU open data.
Participants to the competition can now use the EASO database on IDS asylum case law, and on the major legislative changes in EU+ countries, to develop innovative applications in the context of Challenge 3 of the competition: ‘A new push for European democracy’. The shortlisted ideas will be presented during the 18th European Week of Regions and Cities taking place in Brussels on 13-15 October 2020.
What exactly is the EU Datathon?
- The EU Datathon is a competition organised every year to promote innovation and digital transformation opportunities by using open data produced by the EU institutions, agencies and bodies.
- It is open worldwide to anyone who is interested in creating a profit or non-profit (social) business model through data exploration and/or in creating open data prototype products based on open and public data.
- Participants should propose the development of an application that links and uses open datasets, of which at least one from the thousands made available by the EU.
