About the UN Big Data Hackathon
Following the AIS Big Data hackathon of 2020 hosted by the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) , UNCTAD, UN Global Pulse, Marine Traffic, and CCRi, and the UN Youth Hackathon of 2021 hosted by the UNSD, MGCY, and UNGP regional hubs, this year, The United Nations Committee of Experts on Big Data and Data Science for Official Statistics (UNCEBD), Major Group for Children and Youth (MGCY) and Statistics Indonesia (BPS), is hosting the “2022 UN Big Data Hackathon”.
It is jointly organized by the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD), Global Platform Regional Hubs (Rwanda, UAE, Brazil & China), UN Global Pulse, Asian Development Bank (ADB), Islamic Development Bank (IsDB), UK ONS Data Science Campus, Statistics Canada, and United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), in consultation with the members of the Task Teams of UN Committee of Experts on Big Data and Data Science.
The 2022 UN Big Data Hackathon will happen over the course of 4 days (November 8-9-10-11 2022). It will consist of two tracks; the ‘Big Data Expert’ track and the ‘Youth’ track.
The ‘Big Data expert’ track will bring together teams of Big Data experts, whereas the ‘Youth’ track will be targeting teams of students or young professionals (under the age of 32). Both tracks can either apply to attend the event in person in Indonesia, UAE, Rwanda, and Brazil (with other on-sites being considered) or virtually. Limited funding is available for in person attendance.
The Hackathon aims at developing ideas and solutions to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and assist in resolving Global challenges, in line with a theme that will be revealed closer to the event dates.
