Are you a coder, developer, designer, business developer, expert, scientist wondering how to create impact with Open Data in agriculture and nutrition? Then come to our event and work alongside with like minded people on data and application challenges close to the 2015 Workshop of GODAN

We offer you the opportunity to explore how open data and technologies can help build a better and safer future of food. Anybody canparticipate. Whether you are a student at Wageningen university, or an agricultural advisor to farmers, a business developer or an ngo, a designer or a coder. Challenges will be targeted at the problem of the disconnect between data supply (high end statistics, satellite data, etc) on the one hand and the information need of end users, small holder farmers in particular, on the other.  Mobile technologies are key.

Keep posted to see the challenges and data that will be provided!

Stay tuned!

The Hackathon will take place in the context of the 2015 workshop “Creating Impact with Open Data in Agriculture and Nutrition”, that is is hosted by the Government of the Netherlands and organised by the Open Data Institute in the UK in collaboration with the Dutch research institute Alterra and will take place in Wageningen, between 19-20 of January 2015.

The GODAN initiative on Global Open Data for Agriculture and Nutrition was launched in October 2013 to support global efforts for making relevant data available, accessible, and usable for unrestricted use worldwide. GODAN focuses on building high-level institutional support for open data policies from public and private partners. The International Workshop “Creating Impact with Open Data in Agriculture and Nutrition” (Wageningen, 19/20 January 2015) explores the different types of impact of open data and the pathways towards these impacts. The workshop is hosted by the Government of the Netherlands and organised by the Open Data Institute in the UK in collaboration with Alterra, a part of Wageningen University and Research Centre.
