Kampala INSPIRE Hackathon 2020


Kampala INSPIRE Hackathon 2020

The news is shared as announced in listservs

The INSPIRE Hackathon is a collaborative event for developers, researchers, designers and others interested in open data, volunteered geographic information and citizen observatories.

The main driving force for the INSPIRE Hackathon is provided by experts from existing EU projects, and its primary objective is to share knowledge and experience between the participants and demonstrate to wider audiences the power of data and information supported by modern technologies and common standards, originating from INSPIRE, Copernicus, GEOSS and other initiatives. 

The INSPIRE Hackathon concept has been developed using the INSPIRE initiative as an umbrella or framework for the continuous inclusion of new contributions from European and international professional networks and projects such as the H2020.

In addition to the main INSPIRE Hackathon included in the annual INSPIRE conference, several satellite INSPIRE hackathons are being organised at different venues. (read more here https://www.plan4all.eu/inspire-hackathon/ ) 

In 2019, a successful INSPIRE Hackathon was organised in Nairobi addressing 8 challenges engaging more than 200 participants . Details at https://www.plan4all.eu/nairobi-inspire-hackathon-2019/ 

This year, it is planned to organise yet another INSPIRE hackathon (building upon some of the ideas from Nairobi Hackathon as well as new ones) and present the results from the remote part of the hackathon at IST-Africa 2020 in Kampala (6-8 May 2020).
