The Hackathon to Tweak Public Space!
Hackathon: March 18-19
The Living Data City Challenge hackathon is a two-day event where people with technical, design, and creative backgrounds come together to create new solutions through collaborative development. Its goal: to use open data – information everyone can freely use.
Create playful applications for the municipality of Eindhoven, to inspire and challenge people to become more active, aware, social and happy!
Public space is an important ingredient in the concept of a livable and healthy city. Open data and digital communication have given new perspectives to the design of public space. It allows transparency, participation, collaboration and opportunities to the people. During the hackathon you will research the Heartbeat of the City, finding a way to make Eindhoven an even more exciting place by making IT useful in a playful way.
The Living Data City Challenge offers an exciting journey to undiscovered playgrounds. You and your team will be given a real challenge, and you will need your creative mind to find a solution.
Hack your way to the grand prize and make a difference!
The Living Data City Challenge program also includes a launch platform for long-term development. It is a fertile ground for startups, social enterprises, and community initiatives to incubate, mature and scale up. The three winners will present their prototype at the Beyond Data Event on March 30, which will give opportunities to collaborate with other organizations and develop the concept product further.
Join the Living Data City Challenge as a data provider, tools master, designer, player, hacker, app developer, scientist, marketer, or an angel investor, and show what you are capable of, while gaining new experiences and having a chance at the grand prize!
