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.
