Open data hackathon - sign up today!

Friday 18 March 15:00 - Sunday 20 March 18:30,
Nordic Edge Innoasis, Løkkeveien 111.

A deep-dive into private and public open – source data. We bring the data - do you have the solution? NB- new date!

Publisert: Endret:

Stavanger is the energy capital of Norway with its unique location close to ocean, mountains, and fjords. We face urban challenges to grow and remain sustainable and need your help in finding solution for continued growth. How can open date be the source to value creation.

First of all, let’s see what a hackathon actually is:

It’s all about problem solving – a hackathon is any event of any duration where people come together to solve problems! The event is for the creative, employed, unemployed, students, entrepreneurs, scientists – pretty much anyone! We believe in multi-disciplinary teams to create solutions, which create value for citizens, public and private actors. Here everyone comes together to develop prototypes and innovative solution in a very short time.

A deep-dive into private and public open – source data.

We bring the data- do you have the solution?

We will organize a three-day Hackathon together with Stavanger municipality, Smart city, Lyspæren, Stavanger AI Lab, Nordic Edge and Future Energy Hub with the aim of turning open data into solutions with impact and value creation.

The hackathon will be held at Nordic Edge Innoasis (Løkkeveien 111, 4007 Stavanger) 18th to 20th March.



The event requires registration! Sign up alone or as a team.
