2020 Presidential Hackathon "International Track" Application closes on June 12

The Presidential Hackathon is an initiative designed by the Taiwanese government to demonstrate its emphasis on open data and innovative data use to address needs of national development and social needs.

Your Challenge: How can (open) data help enable the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?
We want your best ideas on how to use open data and technology to help ensure public procurement delivers on the SDGs. We challenge teams to generate, analyze and prototype.

You should address at least one or more of the following:

  • Generate: Can you create new or better open data sources on public procurement?
  • Analyze: Can you find new or improved uses of existing open data and tools that support social innovation in public procurement to enable the SDGs?
  • Prototype: can you create new or better tools for open data in public procurement to enable the SDGs?

You are strongly encouraged to use the Open Contracting Data Standard and/or the Open Contracting for Infrastructure Data Standard in your solution and project. Your project should be unique, and may contribute something new or unfamiliar to the public. What matters is that you have an open data vision for solving a specific SDG problem, whether it is at the regional, national or sub-national level.

The application should be submitted by June 12th 2020. Please find more information on the official website: https://presidential-hackathon.taiwan.gov.tw/en/international-track/
