About

Data is power. Companies use it to gain a competitive advantage and now it's time to use it for the social good.

This 48 hours long sprint-like event brings people from various fields together, challenges them to use data to discover how to impact our society. By the means of data analysis and machine learning, we can identify the problems, raise awareness, untangle myths and fallacies and even provide the solutions. If you think that you want to create social good, contribute with your skills and ideas and create a lasting impact on society, this is your change.

We invite you to take part in the Social Impact Data Hack - the hackathon where data and computer scientists, journalists, economists, students and all people who care join together.

Let’s have fun and muscle your skills for social good!

Experienced mentors will help you make your project the best it can be!
