From the 16th to the 18th o September, the i2CAT Foundation will organize the first open data citizen hackathon in Barcelona. The hackathon will address challenges of several key themes relevant to the citizens, such as Health, Culture and City Services. Attendees of the event will have the opportunity to discuss the proposed challenges, share their point of view with the community, and contribute their ideas, thus making it possible to propose and develop solutions that have a clear positive impact on the needs of citizens.
Citizens or entities involved in the project will have access to open data experts, who will support them to explore how applications based on open data can help to meet their needs. Participating teams will also be provided a technical, user experience and financing support package to help them implement their idea.
The citizen hackathon will kickstart the Open Data Lab Barcelona, the first open data citizen laboratory in the city of Barcelona. This activity is part of the European project Open4Citizens (http://open4citizens.eu/), a European initiative that aims to find new uses of open data for the benefit of citizens in five European cities. Specifically, the project will work to detect and support requirements defined by citizens through the use of open data in Barcelona, Milan, Karlstad, Copenhagen and Rotterdam.
