Event Schedule

Daily Activities

Whether you are completely new to open data or want to learn some more about it and interact with top actors in this area, you are welcome to join us at the RAW Open Data event. Attendance is free, but requires registration due to the limited number of seats.
We have put together a thorough agenda. In the first part of our journey we'll start by establishing some common-ground on open data and getting a brief overview of the world’s leading open-source data portal platform. Then, we'll find out about the implications of an EU directive that requires the public sector to progressively open its data. After that, we move on to learn about the intricacies of licensing the data to be opened. The second part of our journey is dedicated to open data projects: we'll hear about efforts to unlock the full potential of the public sector information in the Mediterranean space; about the experience of the Portuguese public administration in opening its data; about how Grenoble is using open data to promote social innovation; and about how real-time open data can foster value creation and a higher quality of service to users of public transport. We'll close the day with a presentation about learning from our data using innovative visualisations.

About RAW Open Data Hackathon

The RAW Open Data Hackathon is a two-day experience to demonstrate the impact of open-data and information technologies in society. Come with a team, or come as yourself and join a team. Bring an idea, or jump on board with someone else’s. Entrepreneurs, engineers, developers, designers, business professionals and curious citizens are invited to create web and mobile applications to value the huge potential of open data in our society.
To enhance the potential of RAW Open Data Hackathon we are working to bring to you, and society, for the first time different sets of Open Public Data from Coimbra, which will also be available to the general public.

RAW Open Data Hackathon will be hosted in Instituto Pedro Nunes.

Hackathon Objectives

Create prototypes and documents that prove the value and usefulness to society, institutions and the country of open data to foster the opening of more public data.
Establish and promote a new data base with focus in Coimbra’s Unesco World Heritage Site: University of Coimbra and Sofia.
Promote a “Good practices Manual on Open Data” to help institutions to open their data in a standard way.
Establish connections with/between developers, which will be able to ensure future events and projects in Open Data.

The Datasets

Participant can use any datasets they found in internet repositories, nevertheless we will provide several websites with data available and we will debut a new database with Open Public Data from Coimbra. It is our objective to continue to feed this new data base with Public Data, and foster its use by developers to create new added value applications even after the RAW Open Data Hackathon.

Rules/Code of conduct

Online registration ends at 23.59h on October 10th, 2014 or when maximum event capacity is reached, 50 people. Participants are encouraged to register as early as possible to ensure a spot in the competition. You can attend the RAW Open Data event on 16th October or just the Hackathon on 16th and 17th October. Both events are free of charge.

Participants can participate as a team or individually. There is no maximum number of people in a team, although we recommended a team size of 4 multidisciplinary members.

Team formation
Participants will register individually. During the Kick-Off Party we will provide time to form teams or join others. Team will be locked down following the check-in on the morning of October 16th.

Start & End Times
Teams can start working at 18.30h on October 16th and must be complete by 18.00h on October 17th. Teams are encouraged to discuss their ideas and plan their applications prior the event, but all technical designs, developed code, and production assets for each entry must be created during the Hackathon. The event space will remain open overnight and teams are encouraged to work around the clock on their applications.

Languages & Tools
Applications may be assembled using any programming language, frameworks or development tools. Participants are expected to bring the necessary hardware and software tools. Internet access will be provided.

Source Code Rights
Teams are encouraged to contribute their work at an open source repository or project following the event, but RAW Open Data will foster the creation of new companies or products based on open data. RAW Open Data will not claim any intellectual property, source code, or applications developed as part of the event.

Technical Support
During the Hackathon we will have technical support to help people access and work with several open datasets.

Press Release

Generic questions about the Hackathon

Frequently asked questions can be updated any time. If you have a specific question not answered in the website please send an email to IPN's official contacts.

Due to the wide spread focus of Open Data we believe that RAW Open Data Hackathon is suited to developers, professors, educators, decision makers, public bodies, investors, experienced entrepreneurs, innovators, young students, recent graduates, coders, marketers, designers, business and product developers.

Participants may come as individuals or teams, and with or without a pitch. As stated in the rules there is not limit for team members, nevertheless we advise that teams shouldn’t have more than 5 members.

Participants will work on projects of their choice for 24h. Hackathon teams form on Thursday or Friday morning, and create prototypes until Friday at 19h. In this hackathon we expect people extend their personal network and have fun with fellow participants, and have the chance to jumpstart an idea or a company from an exciting 24h challenge.

Yes! You just have to bring your computer, your creativity, talent and ideas, we will provide you the space, the food, the drinks and the fun.

Yes! We thought about the all-nighters so we will maintain the working space open as long as at least a team or a team member wants to work. But if you are an early bird don’t worry, Friday the working space will be open at 9 o’clock.

Projects and teams with the most innovative and breakthrough solutions will have the opportunity to be invited to several incubation and acceleration programmes managed by the organization partners (conditions to be specified later).

Of course! In fact we want to keep feeding it with more open data from different sources. We know that this is a very difficult, hardworking and time consuming task, but we also believe that Open Data has the potential to innovative and disruptive products and companies.

The official language spoken in the Hackathon will be English. This way we believe that we can have participants from all around Europe and foster teams with a multicultural, multinational and multidisciplinary approach, to enrich the participants' experience and the results of the event.
