Paris Peace Forum Hackathon – call for applications
The Paris Peace Forum Hackathon is an opportunity to focus collective intelligence in the fields of social sciences, IT, data and the economy on global governance and financial data transparency issues.
A hackathon will take place during the Paris Peace Forum on 11-13 November at La Grande Halle de La Villette in Paris.
Hackers will work on financial data transparency and will be assisted by coordinators and mentors in order to meet the challenges set by partner organizations based around four themes:
- Budget transparency of international organizations
- Budget transparency of international events
- Transparency of public procurement
- Communicating financial data to the public
Their goal will be to face these challenges by developing prototypes and innovative digital solutions, in teams of between two and six people.
This call for applications is open to IT experts, engineers, programmers and designers with an interest in global governance and financial data transparency issues, until 6 p.m. (Paris time - CEST) on 19 October 2018.
