2021 Presidential Hackathon (Taiwan) - International Track
Deadline: 4 August 2021
The Presidential Hackathon is an initiative designed by the Taiwanese government to encourage data owners, data scientists and field experts working together to accelerate the optimization of public services.
Launched in 2018 by the Taiwan Presidency as a domestic challenge, the Taiwan Presidency then expanded the initiative to include an international track in 2019 where participants from around the world were invited to propose open data solutions for delivering a better and more sustainable environment worldwide.
The theme for the 2021 edition is Sustainability 2.0 - Climate Action. Civic hackers around the world are invited to submit and develop your ideas for accelerating green recovery, fighting climate change, and for building transnational partnership to solve cross-border climate issues.
Challenge topics: climate mitigation, climate adaptation, and climate and other Sustainable Development Goals (SDG)
Your best ideas on how to use open data and technology to help ensure the delivery of Climate Action are wanted. Teams are challenged to generate, analyze and prototype.
Anyone can apply. Teams from academia, business, civil society, government, media, or a combination of roles are encouraged. What matters is that you have an open data vision for solving a specific problem, whether it is at global, regional, national or sub-national level.
Your team should consist of 3-5 members. Successful teams will consist of at least three key roles: a Policy Navigator; a Technical Navigator; and a Partnership Builder.
Prizes for winning teams include an award cup; the opportunity to present your live demo in the Taiwan Presidential Office; and the opportunity to join the International Program in Kaohsiung for future collaborations or project landings.
Deadline: 4 August 2021, 15:00 Taiwan's National Standard Time (02:00 Colombian time)
