Pre-Dataharvest Hack Day

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Ahead of Dataharvest EIJC15 on Thursday May 7th we plan a hack day to crunch some data sets, so journalists (in collaboration with developers) can plan story ideas during the conference.
Focus will be on:
- EU spending – regional funds
- EU spending – farm subsidies (we have fresh data for two countries, all publications are due on April 30th)
- EU spending – FTS
- National spending according to EU rules – TED
- Data about chemicals – ECHA (agency guys will be around to guide us on what’s there, formats etc.)
