Presidential Hackathon is an initiative designed for the Taiwanese government to demonstrate its emphasis on open data and innovative data utilization to address the needs of national development and social needs. The event aims to facilitate exchanges among data owners, data scientists and field experts to assemble the wisdom of crowds across government, industry and private and public sectors. Ultimately, it strives to accelerate the optimization of public services and encourage proactive innovation from public servants to achieve the upgrade of government services with the help of hacker culture, promote the well-being of the people and create global partnerships
Started in 2018 by the Taiwan Presidency as a domestic challenge, it initiated the first step of global reach that it went international in 2019. Participants from around the world were invited to propose open data solutions for delivering better and more sustainable infrastructure worldwide.
We are looking for exciting and innovative open data ideas that can help deliver the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through the use of data, technology and collaboration.
We encourage teams from academia, business, civil society, government, media, or a combination of roles. What matters is that you have an open data vision for solving a specific problem, whether it is at the regional, national or sub-national level.
