Following an application procedure to the Department of Public Expenditure & Reform’s Open Data Engagement Fund, funding was awarded to a proposal by staff members of Waterford Institute of Technology to realise the ambition of hosting a datathon.

The datathon will focus on bringing together teams/individuals to create a data visualisation that correlates multiple open datasets with the outcome being a useful derivation of the data and/or a previously unseen relationship between the datasets.

Applications for participation will be sought on a national basis. This will be an open competition and a prize will be awarded to the winning entry on the day of the event.
