Open Data Challenge is an idea lab and hackathon for public actors, researchers and entrepreneurs. Partners have proposed main challenges that participants from different groups will work on during the event. The winners are chosen by a jury on the same day and will receive a monetary stipend and secured placement in the project’s next development phase, Open DataLab.
In addition, there will be inspiring speeches on the possibilities for business development based on open data. The participants in the group can meet physically ordigitally to work on the challenges during the event.
Open Data Challenge 2022 is organized by SamÅpne project, which is a collaboration between SINTEF, Trondheim municipality, Bodø municipality, follower cities and business actors.
Physically at DIGS Krambugata 2, meeting room 502/503, and in Oslo Mesh Youngstorget, as well as digitally via Cisco Webexstream here. (Note: depending on the COVID-19 situation, the event may take place only digitally.)
Theme 2022: Energy
Use of energy data to understand or prepare new business models based on open data.
How can we get an overview of energy consumption?
We want to use available data to gain insight into the energy consumption pattern. This can support the planning of measures to reduce energy consumption and peaks in energy consumption.
How can energy data be used to accelerate the green transition in cities?
To achieve the climate goals and become a zero-emission society, we must produce more renewable energy and, at the same time, use it smarter and more efficiently. Development of technologies such as solar power, smart homes and batteries is going at a furious pace, but adoption is still too slow. How can we use the available data to help people make smart choices for the future and their wallets?
Who can participate?
Everyone is welcome! Start-ups, students, public actors and business actors who want to work with this year's theme.
