Our project spendingreen has been shortlisted within the finalist for the open data competition promoted by the Publications Office of the European Union, EU Datathon 2020.
The 4th edition of EU Datathon is being organised in close collaboration with the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy (DG REGIO) who will make it a highlight at this year's renowned European Week of Regions and Cities.
EU Datathon is a much-anticipated event in the open data community. It stimulates innovative reuse of data, through apps and visualisations, helping young startups and other initiatives gain visibility and further support for their ideas.
The competition has been launched on 19 February and was open to ideas that showcase opportunities for concrete business models or social enterprises, to find suitable new approaches and solutions to help Europe achieve important goals set by the European Commission through the use of open data.
Elaboro’s idea spendingreen was selected, within a total of 121 submitted proposals, as finalist for the challenge “A European Green Deal”.
We now have to turn our proposal into a fully-working application that could be marketable when unveiled during the European Week of Regions and Cities in Brussels from 12 to 15 October 2020.
Our final pitch will happen on 15 October 2020. A jury, composed of experts from within and outside the EU public sector, will evaluate finalists’ applications. This will culminate in a prize-giving ceremony, including a public choice award that will give two tickets for this year's Web Summit in Lisbon: the public will vote on their preferred application during the last 4 days of the competition.
The winning app, within the 3 pre-selected, will be also published on the EU Open Data Portal.
