EU Datathon - Meet the 12 finalists shortlisted for the final competition

These 12 finalists are expected to present up-and-running apps that use open data made available by the EU institutions, agencies and bodies such as EMODnet. Each app should address one of four key challenges set by the European Commission

Apps that contribute to a greener economy, transform rural areas, foster transparency, defend our democracy against disinformation, provide educational tools to adapt to digitalisation … these are just some of the proposals the finalist teams from around the world will present at the final event.

Take a minute to learn more about what these teams are developing by watching the ‘Behind the scenes’ videos.
