Are you interested in challenges related to climate change? If so, this 1-day event for data scientists, developers, entrepreneurs, modellers and students is for you! Thanks to the cooperation with Copernicus Climate Change Service* (C3S), this year's hackathon will challenge you to understand and quantify Climate Change impacts in several real-world applications. 

The topics covered during this event will be: 

  • Water scarcity
  • Urban heat island
  • Extreme rain
  • Coastal erosion
  • Coastal flooding
  • Port operability

Share your thoughts, workflows and innovative data-driven solutions! The Climate Data Store (CDS) will provide you with valuable datasets to work with and the possibility to explore the Earth's past, present and future climate.  The participants will be grouped in multi-disciplinary teams (scientists, GIS experts, software engineers, entrepreneurs) to elaborate on 6 Use Cases covering both inland and coastal sectors and find sustainable solutions. The final product of the hackathon will be a per group pitch that considers technical and business plan together with a demo of the proposed solution.
