Hackathon: Next Generation Internet Data Sprint

20 October 2018

The Data Sprint will take place on 9-10 November at the Faculty of Economic Sciences. During the hackathon you will have the opportunity to cooperate with experienced data-scientists from the consortium (Nesta, Eurecat, Delab) and be among the first to get to experiment with our data sets and new methodologies - from doing text-mining analyse to building data visualisations, using web data sources like Reddit, Wikipedia, Ars Technica or Reuters. 

We will work in small groups of 3 to 4 students, attractive awards are available for the best and most creative projects. This is also an opportunity to have some of your work showcased to the European Commission. For inspirations check out some of our preliminary results: https://ngi.delabapps.eu/
