The Estonian Presidency of the Council of the European Union and the Publications Office of the European Union are organising a Datathon.

The Datathon will focus on the reuse of data from the EU Open Data Portal, the access point to open data produced by the institutions and agencies of the European Union.

The Datathon will start in September 2017, with the final event in Brussels scheduled to take place on 16 November 2017.

The participants will have the opportunity to demonstrate how open data from public institutions can be used to address specific policy or societal challenges and generate jobs and growth. In particular, they are invited to focus on the following priorities of the Juncker Commission:

- Jobs, growth and investment;
- Digital single market;
- Democratic change.

The winners will present their product at the European Big Data Value Forum in Versailles, 21-23 November 2017.
