The EU Datathon 2019 competition aims to promote the reuse of open data from across the European Union. 99 teams submitted creative ideas and 12 teams have been shortlisted to develop their app. The teams will present their apps in the final event in Brussels on 13 June 2019.

The third edition of the EU Datathon has been officially launched on 28 January 2019 by the Publications Office of the European Union, in partnership with the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

The EU Datathon is a growing-in-popularity event aiming to further stimulate the use of open data issued by the European Union. It allows competitors to showcase their data skills and innovative ideas. Furthermore, it offers them the opportunity to network and gather support in order to continue developing their ideas after the competition.

The challenges

The participating teams will compete with their apps in one horizontal or two thematic challenges:

  • Challenge 1: ‘Innovative ideas through EU open data’
  • Challenge 2: ‘New insights into economics and finance’
  • Challenge 3: ‘Tackling climate change’

The prizes

The competition is supported by the European Parliament’s Preparatory Action “Linked Open Data in the European Public Administration” and the European Commission ISA² Programme (Interoperability solutions for public administrations, businesses and citizen).
