Eurostat is organising the fourth round of the European Big Data Hackathon from 2 to 7 March 2023 (including the presentation by the winners at the NTTS), as an in-person meeting in Brussels. The purpose of the 2023 hackathon is to foster expertise in using Big Data sources relating to financial transactions for producing innovative ideas for products and tools relevant for the EU policies.
The European Big Data Hackathon is organised by the European Commission (Eurostat) and gathers teams from all over Europe to compete for the best solution to a statistical challenge. The teams develop innovative approaches, applications and data products combining official statistics and big data that can help to answer pressing EU policy and/or statistical questions.
For points relating to logistics and/or questions on hackathon procedures, please contact our functional mailbox: ESTAT-EU-BD-HACKATHON@ec.europa.eu
The Hackathon will take off on 2 March 2023 with the announcement of the challenge and will close on 6 March 2023 when the teams present their solutions. The winners will be awarded on 7 March 2023, at the first day of the NTTS 2023, where they have the opportunity to present their solutions more in detail.

Twenty-four hackathon teams of National Statistical Institutes’ experts and four teams of students from EMOS network universities will compete in the 2023 European Big Data Hackathon.
